War Causes Many Changes In Faculty And Students At State 

Largest Entering 
Class In History 
Numbers Over 400 

Freshman Class To Enter 
Start With A Program 
Girded For Wartime 

State Co-Captains Enlist 

The largest entering class in the 
history of the college registered Mon- 
day as the 75th academic year was 
formally opened. 421 freshmen, in- 
cluding 261 men 160 women, were en- 
rolled as members of the class of 
1946. These statistics may be compar- 
ed to last year's entering group 
which included 226 men and 147 
women, making a total of 373, the 
largest number entering before this 

Despite the present world condi- 
tions and the large number of men 
being called into the service, the 
entering men exceeded the number of 
men entering last year by 35. The 
women this year exceeded the number 
of entering co-eds in the class of 
li»45 by 13. 

In 1917, the class of 1921 had 
107 new registrations, including 100 
men and seven women. The 1915 and 
1916 totals were larger and World 
War I drained the colleges. In the 
World War II, the effect upon the en- 
tering class is the complete reverse

The value of college in war time will 
be determined in the very near future. 
As Dean Machmer pointed out this aft- 
ernoon, colleges cannot serve as bomb- 
proof shelters for those who are seeking 
to evade the draft. Actions of college 
students will be on trial. The public will 
judge the college student more severely 
than ever before. 

The average man in the street who 
has someone in the armed forces al- 
ready looks critically upon the colleges 
with their programs leading to commis- 
sions. Actions which in the past have 
been typical of college students are out 
tor the duration. College has become a 
very serious business. From colleges 
must come the leadership which this 
country needs in the future. 

While the administration has been 
very considerate in not curtailing the 
social calendar of the college, students 
should judge carefully just what activ- 
ities they can take in. After all. the 
principle duty of the college student, 
who aa the Dean put it. is here on bor- 
rowed time, is to prepare himself for 
the task ahead. 

It adds nothing to the prestige of 
the college to have its students cutting 
the sort of capers that the public has 
tome to expect of the college student, 
hi fact in this time of crisis, the public 
will not tolerate them at this time. 
College in the near future will be exact- 
ly what the students make it. Now is 
the time to gel serious, settle down 
to work, and justify the expectations 
the country has placed in college pro- 

PEANUT GALLERY Enlisted Reserve 

Still Recruiting 

By John Hicks 

The Peanut Gallery takes great 
pleasure in welcoming itself back to the 
Mass. State Campus. Naturally, this 
splendid column can do no greater serv- 
ice this first week than to acquaint the 
new Freshmen with some of the fine 
points of this great institution. 

M.S.C. is situated about one mile out- 
side of the thriving little town of Am- 
herst. Amherst may be reached by bus 
from Northampton. Busses run every 
hour on Tuesdays, and also every thir- 
teenth Saturday. Northampton is con- 
nected to Smith by marriage, and to 
Springfield by rail. The railroad com- 
pany has recently announced that the 
service will soon be greatly improved, 
and wheels may even be put on some of 
the cars. 

In the town of Amherst there is an- 
other institute of higher learning known 
as Amherst College. This school has 
produced many brilliant men, including 
Calvin Coolidge who might have been 
a great track star in his undergraduate 
days except that he "did not choose to 

Major Allan F. Kice of the military 
department announces that there are 
still vacancies in the Enlisted Reserve 
< orfM Rfld urges all interested tospply 
in order that they may appear before 
the board Tuesday evening. Selection 
of the candidates is based upon schol- 
arship, leadership, and draft standing. 
There are now 420 men in the EKC 
program, including those in the ad- 
vanced military course. 

All who successfully meet the re- 
quirements are inducted into the army 
and placed on the reserve list. They 
are then entitled to continue their 
education until graduation unless the 
situation warrants their call to active 
service. When these men are called, 
they stand an excellent chance of 
being selected for officer training. 

Col Donald A. Young, commandant, 
stated that instruction in mechaniza- 
! tion will be given the seniors in a 
course the second semester. Mechan- 
ized equipment will be available in 
order that practical training will 
be used to supplement the class work. 


Tomorrow evening on the steps of 
the Physical Education Building, Adel- 
phia will conduct the first in a series 
of rallies before all major football 
games. This will be the first opportu- 
nity that the student body will have 
to show their appreciation of the men 
who make up our athletic teams. To 
take part in athletic- contests requires 
time and effort on the part of the in- 
dividual concerned. It often calls for 
a physical sacrifice on the part of the 

The number of men who make up 
our teams is small compared to the 
size of the student body. However, 
each and every one of us should be 
o t there fighting with the team at 
least in spirit. 

To members of all four classes Adel- 

■ phia extends an invitation to attend 

these rallies. Only by backing our boys 

can we expect them to represent us at 

our best. 

Also within the town are two filling 
stations which serve all the nationally 
advertised brands of beer. Freshmen 
may visit these establishments only if 
accompanied by a member of the Peanut 
Gallery. (Drinks, of course, are on the 


The two legged creatures seen 
around campus who respond strongly 
to whistles and catcalls are co-eds, and 
should be treated accordingly. 

The gentlemen who walk around 
wearing black hats with red and white 
stripes are senators. Any relation to 
persons living or dead is purely coinci- 

Anyone seen limping around is either 
a football player or a Civil War Vet- 
eran. And we have none of the latter. 
There are a number of buildings on 
campus, and these are used for various 
and sundry purposes. Their main ob- 
ject is to house classes, a subject which 
should be looked into to some degree 
by students. Attendance is required at 
all classes scheduled in the College 


Finally, we wish to impress all 
freshmen that the main object of going 
t.. college is to receive an education, in 
spite of any malicious rumors to the 
contrary. And over the length and 
breadth of the entire campus, or for 
that matter of any campus, there is no 
more scholarly piece of work than the 
Peanut Gallery, which is all we started 
out to say anyhow. 

Engineering t Department 
Offers Two New Courses 

The Engineering Department is pre- 
pared to offer two mums to students 
who are planning to make direct con- 
tribution to the war effort: Automotive 
Equipment and Engineering Drawing. 
The former is intended, primarily, for 
the men who are planning to enter the 
armed services and the latter should 
be of interest to women students be- 
cause of the tremendous demand from 
industry for draftwomen and those 
trained in blue print interpretations. 

Trials For Music 
Clubs To Be Soon 

Doric Alviani wields the baton for 
nis fifth consecutive year as leader of 
the combined Glee Clubs, the Sinfoni- 
etta, and production manager of the 
"Yeoman and the (iuard", eighth 
annual Gilbert and Sullivan operetta 
to be presented on campus. The open- 
ing gun will voice trials for the Men's 
Glee Club at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 
October $, in the Memorial building. 
At 8:00 p.m. will follow a combined 
Glee Club Rehearsal for both men 
and women. 

Prospective members of the Sin- 
tbnietta are slated for tryouts on 
Wednesday, October 7, at 7:00 p.m. 
They are requested to bring their in- 
struments. Especially needed are 
trombones, violins, and clarinets. At 
8:00 p.m. the first rehearsal of the 
leasoa will be held. The Sinfonietta 
is the youngster of the musical clubs, 
having graced this campus but three 
years, hi this short time however, it 
has played for numerous occassions, 
especially lending support to the an- 
nual operetta. 

On October 8 the band is scheduled 
to rehearse in the Memorial building 
at 7 00 p.m. as John Hilchey takes 
over his new position of student band 
leader. Mr. Farnum, whose able guid- 
ance has directed a successful band in 
past seasons, is now in the Navy, and 
ids place will be filled by Doric Al- 

The voice trials for the Women's 
Glee Club will be held in Stockbridge 
Hall. Room 11 I, at 8:15 p.m., at which 
time all classes may try out. 

On October it the tryouts for the 
leading parts in "Yeoman and the 
Guards" will be held at 4 to 5:80 in 
the Memorial building. The Operetta 
has always been one of the gala e- 
vents on campus, and this year's oper- 
etta promises to live up to former

I.n lloli llurke 



Well, here we go again — for how 
long'.' —your guess is probably wrong, 
too. The coming year will undoubted- 
ly make great changes in the lives of 
many on this campus — both men and 
women. At a time when, under normal 
conditions, talk would ordinarily cen- 
ter about football, fraternity rushing, 
and who is a sure winner in the Series, 
discussion now are highlighted by one 
question: "How do ya' stand with 
Uncle Sam, Joe?" Yes, the serious 
business of war has made its impres- 
sion here as it has everywhere and 
with the coming months, we'll all feel 
this pressure more and more. For in- 
stance, if your room some winter 
morning is a chilly (50 instead of a 
comfortable 72, nothing is wrong with 
the radiator, it's just that one-third 
less oil that isn't being burned. And 
My, Bud if you plan to go anywhere 
by ear this winter, you'd better start 
about twice SI early as it ordinarily 
would take because you can't hurry 
at 35 m. p. m. — but you probably 
won't be in a hurry anyway because 
you're not going far — no gas! ! 

All of which reminds us that at last 
reports, the football squad was still in 
doubts as to how and when it would 
reach Storrs in time for next Satur- 
day's game against I Conn. We have 
it on a hot grapevine, however, that 
the team will leave the Cavalry field 
Thursday afternoon on horseback and 
by making a forced march of '!•'> hours, 
should reach the field in time. 

Kidding aside, however, we would 
like to leave a thought for the day. 
Now, you've probably heard this 
same line year after year ever since 
ramtnnr school but that makes it 
lone-t he-less true. And that is, just 
as surely as the soldier in the field 
reeds the defense worker behind him, 
So do our athletic teams need student 
Support for their morale and drive. So 
turnout and cheer — it's good for the 
squads' morale and its good for your 
lungs, and remember — support your 
team but support your country first — 
buy I'nited States War Bonds and 
Stamps!!! B.B.15.

Iii addition to individual work, various 
Combinations were tried in a series 
of scrimmages which climaxed in a 
int la stpiad regulation game Satur- 

To divulge the new plays the team 
is using would be nothing short oi 
treason. However, it can be stated 
that the Maroon and Whit cluh is 
shifty and speedy, Lower alone is 
I a king, but the determination of 1 1 if 
• oiad creates a form of power which 
cannot he overlooked. 

The use of freshmen in varsity ac- 
tion is a new ruling which will 
talnly benefit the team. Two >cai lings 
from Springfield, I'ran Keough and 
L/./.y Vergeau, have burned up the 

field with their stellar play, and are 
certain to be welcome additions for 
us and poison to our foes. Keough 
shines in the backtield alone with I'.ul

on the 17th. The Maroon and White 
aggregation Is centering its hopes on 

the remaining letterinen of last sea- 
sons squad, chiefly, Kuss McDonald, 
George Caldwell, and Karle Newton, 
Another mainstay of the team should 
be Kay llollis, who after laying oil' 
during his sophomore year, is hack 
ibis season to give more of the line 
performances of bis freshmen career. 
As for last year's Freshmen, Kay 
Campbell anil .Joe Alfiiri were the 
tandotttl and both should gladden 
Cach Derby's heart with their work 
this fall. 

The new freshmen ruling is Un- 
expected to turn up a few good 
men from the class id' '10 SO in spite 
of war conditions, State should he

Massachusetts State College is con 
tributing not only trained men but 
tons of metal to the nation's war 
•ffort, according to a report made yes- 
terday by President Hugh P. Baker. 

As the nation this week bent its en

Hort Show Cancelled 
As War Precaution 

.Massachusetts State College last 
wet k listed its annual fall horticul- 
tural show a- a "war casualty" when 
Prof. Clark L. Thayor, head of the 
department of floriculture and chair- 
ma nof the show, announced cancella- 
tion because of transportation prob- 
lems and shortage of qualified stu- 
dents to stage the exhibition. 

Known as one of the outstanding 
horticultural shows in New England, 
the annual affair has drawn as many 
as 16,000 persons in a single week- 
end. The show this year would have 
been the 31th annual affair of its 
kind held since the shows were first 
-tailed in 1908. The only other major 
cancellation was caused by the hurr- 
icane of 1938. 

Fifty-Eight Cadets Selected For 
First Year Advanced R0TC At State 

Col. Donald A. Young, Professor Of Military 
Science And Tactics, Announces Final List 
Of Juniors, Largest Number Ever At State 

Enlisted Reserve 
Program Announced 

'.he I 'nlisted Reserve pn gram has 

li. en set up on the Massachusetts 
state College Campus for the purpose 

of providing the army with a steady 

stream of officer material for the 
nevt three or four years and at the 
Ban <• time give undergraduates who 
would otherwise be drafted a chance. 

to complete their college education. 
Massachusetts State College has a 
quote for each of its four classes; a 
quote which is yet to be tilled. As 
the quota is limited in number and 
includes members of reserves in all 
the branches as well as the advanced 
ROTC men on campus, the process 
of picking men is necessarily highly 
selective. A ipiest ionaire is being giv 
en tn all male students in order that 
the Military Division may have a 
complete record of all students who 
have enlisted in any of the reserve 


The members of Enlisted Reserve 
corps will be given a screening exam- 
ination at the end of the year. Those 
failing the test will be sent immed- 
iately to active duty. Also if any man 
fails to keej) his standing with his 
class of leaves college for any other 
reason he will immediately be ordered 
to active service as a private. 

The entire corps of cadets and en- 
listed reserve will remain on campus 
from April 22 to 2X for a week of in- 
tensive military training including 
drills, tactics, and marches. During 
this week of field training the campus 
and buildings will be utilized as train- 
ing areas. 

The board of selection for the En- 
listed Reserve corps is headed by Ma- 
jor Allen P. Rice and includes Regis- 
trar M. (>. Laaphear, Dr. T. C. Cald- 
well, Prof. (J. A. Marston, and Dr. 
R. W. Peseenden. 

Most of the enlistees are unassigned 
and will be given the privilege of 
choosing their branch before they are 
ordered to active service. A board 
consisting of represetetives from all 
branches of the service will be on 
campus November 5. The enlistees 
wid be interviewed at that time and 
will be aided in the choice of brandies 
of the service.

One Oi the first problems which the 
Senate will probably tackle is that of 
campus elections. Judging by the tact 
that bat 80 members of the present 
senior class voted for senate represen- 
tatives last spring, it can be safely as- 
sumed that something is wrong with 
the present system. 

The Collegian believes that student 
interest could be aroused if all elections 
could be held on the same day. Granted 
that the jurisdiction of the Senate and 
the WSGA should be kept separate, 
there still is no valid reason why all 
elections cannot be held on the same 


There is no reason whatsoever for 
electing class officers for the freshman 
class, especially under the present sys- 
tem where members of the class hardly 
know each other at the time they are 
asked to choose officers. 

All class officers, all Senate members, 
all members of the Maroon Key, and all 
members of the WSGA could very well 
be elected at the same time late in the 
spring, his would mean that class of- 
ficers would be elected for the school 
year to come. This being the case, the 
handing down of the Mantle of Tradi- 
tion from the senior class president to 
the junior class president would take on 
more meaning. 

Of course this would mean that the 
freshman class would never have any 
class officers as such However, as long 
as they don't need any. a class commit- 
tee could be appointed or elected at some 
time during the first part of the year. 
Before any move to concentrate elec- 
tions in any one day is made, the Sen- 
ate and WSGA should be sure that 
their fields of authority are clearly de- 

It would also probably be a good idea 
to have a polling place open all day with 
responsible in charge and in this way 
give the entire student body an oppor- 
tunity to vote. 

If we are to continue in our belief 
that the college campus is the proving 
ground of democracy, then something 
musl be done soon to make democracy 
on this college campus practical. 

Krenek, note Czech composer of the 
opera, "Jonny Spiell Ant'," has been appointed 
professor of music at Hamline University, St. 
Paul, Minnesota. 


The war and other factors have 
brought about marked changes in the 
makeup and personnel of the Massa- 
chusetts Collegian. Among other things 
the size of the staff has been cut down 
to where but a handfull of people remain 
to carry on the work of putting out the 
college weekly. 

This means that the Collegian will 
not be able to give as full a degree of 
coverage as it has in the past unless 
members of the student body and facul- 
ty coop rate as fully as possible with 
the editors. This is an appeal to the pub- 
licity representatives of the various stu- 
dent organisations on campus to get 
their material into the Collegian office 
personally on the Tuesday of the week 
in which they desire publication. It is 
also an appeal to members of the faculty 
to send to the Collegian office material 
which they consider of interest to the 
college community. This applies particu- 
larly to the men who are in charge of 
the various sections of the ARP and 
Civilian Defense program. 

The Collegian can handle all the ma- 
terial that comes into the office but to 
ask members of the staff to open sourc- 
e's of news not already covered is out of 
the question with the present depleted 
condition of the staff. This does not 
mean that the Collegian will cease to 
cover regular sources of news, it simply 
means that the coverage given to cer- 
tain events will not be to as great a 
degree as before unless those respons- 
ible will undertake to bring to the Col- 
legian office their information.

Suppose we start off by talking about 
Billy Kyle, pianist par excellence with 
John Kirby's fast little outfit, and then 
digressing to a discussion of the master 
basist himself. 

Well, how can we describe Mr. Kyle 
except by saying that he is very excit- 
ing? Billy has a left hand as uncontroll- 
ed as a mustang and a right hand equal- 
ly as wild. His best work with Kirby 
lias not been recorded but his solos 
with one of Pete Brown's rocordng 
bands cannot be ignored We're thinking 
about "Ocean Motion", Tempo de jump. 
Twelve Bar Stampede, Feathered la- 
ment. (Decca Red Seal) Beside Billy, 
these records feature such notables as 
Pete Brown on alto, Benny Carter on 
trumpet, and Bobby Hackett on guitar. 
We plan to speak again of Pete and 
Benny when we do a column on the 
masters of the alto sax, 

We met Billy this summer when Kir- 
by was playing a one nighter in the 
Apple. In the course of theconversation 
some ridiculous person asked Mr. Kirby 
how it felt to be the best bass player 
in the country. John just shrugged his 
should rs and answered, "Artie Bern- 
stein's the best." Now, it could not be 
denied when Benny Goodman was lead- 
ing his finest sextet that Bernstein and 
Fatool were the best rhythm duo in 
the country, but really Mr. Kirby, you 
are too modest. You readers who have 
heard the Columbia recording of I Got 
Rythm by the latest Metronome All 
Stars will agree with us.

W.A.A. Freshman Play Day 

I Co-Editing 


Hy Alice MaKuire 


This column is written with an eye 
for notes of interest to coeds — and a 
glance for an occasional male who gets 
snagged between the Peanut Gallery 
and the sports page. It's also an ideal 
method of tilling space for a paper not 
too crowded with news. 

"The largest freshman class in the 
history of the college," having been 
duly installed and conscientiously 
viewed — activities have settled down to 
the usual scheme — freshmen traversing 
the woody, paths, upperclassmen follow- 
ing them. Physical exams, freshmen's 
nightmares, are about over — feminine 
visitors, freshmen's burden, has just be- 
gun. As social activities are being cut 
down, the movies are showing the same 
feature all week-end, and the weather is 
getting cooler, fraternity affairs this 
year will take on new import. 

With one national sorority and several 
others on their way, with Sigma Iota in 
a new house, and with a general dearth 
of underclassmen — coed rushing cur- 
rently should reach new heights or 
fights. Let's hope the freshmen come 
out unscathed and satisfied. 

Flit suffered a setback when Miss Cal- 
lahan left the barn to follow the 
WAVES. There's to be an exhibition 
Saturday, however, so be on hand to 
view the art. 

The male shortage is resulting in a 
more fraternal, though less brotherly, 
feeling among the neighboring colleges. 
Witness th? fact that a bevy of glad- 
so. ne gals from the nearest town braved 
the busline to call on fraternities around 
campus ... a few of the local lads re- 
sponded — and exposed to anything 
spent an evening at the other end of 
town — real cooperation — for defense- 
Note for the week: remember to feel 
— as you thrown open the winow less 
like a fresh air fiend than an oil burner!

We are highly pleased with the way 
the scrap metal drive is progressing 
throughout the nation, and we wish to 
make our contribution to the myriads of 
ideas which have been advanced towards 
swelling the scrap pile. Undoubtedly 
there are thousands oi' pounds of metal 
floating around in the form of old half 
dollars, quarters, dimes and pennies. 
These could easily be turned into guns 
and bullets. In order to show our unsel- 
fish devotion to the cause, we are willing 
to act as collectors for just this scrap. 
Just place all your old coins in a bag, 
(anything dated before 1943 will be ac- 
cepted) and deliver it to the Peanut 
Gallery. We will see that it reaches the 
proper authorities. 

During the recent introducton of 
freshmen to the fraternites, three were 
pledged to Zoo Lab and two to the Math 
Building before they discovered their 

The freshmen won the rope pull but 
the sophs balked at going through the 
pond. But when Fitzpatrick threatened 
that if they did not go in he would go 
back to writing this column, the boys 
broke their necks to plunge into the 
brine. Anything but that, they said. 
I tuned in on the radio, to get a 

little swing; 
A booming voice informed me that 

I was a sluggish thing : 
My liver needed waking up, intestines 

were asleep, 
My spleen was in such awful shape 

it nearly made me weep. 
I turned the dial a half an inch, only 

to find out 
If I didn't change my diet I would 

suffer from the gout. 
A fellow with a pleading voice got 

down upon his knees, 
And begged me to prolong my life by 

eating eggs and cheese. 
I tried another station, and learned 

that I was done 
If I should fail to eat some more of 

vitamin B one. 
The shoes that I was wearing would 

make my feet a wreck, 
And surely I should be insured to 

fall and break my neck. 
I needed antiseptic, or I would lose 

my throat, 
Unless I used a certain soap I'd 

smell like Murphy's goat. 
According to the radio my end 

drawing near, 
I had a hundred kinds of plagues 

and sicknesses to fear, 
I often wondered to myself if I 

would last the day, 
And yet, despite my thousand ills, 
the Draft Board said "1A". 

Break Training Rales 

Best way to be a semi-finalist in college 
girls' tennis is to study Social Science 223 
faithfully and never practice, says Sammie 
Norwood, co-ed Et New Mexico Highlands uni- 
versity. Las Ve :;ts. 

Sammie gave these and other rules when 
the editor of The Candle, student newspaper, 
got her mixed up in a tennis story with Alice 
Norwood, the real semi-finalist in the tourney. 

Tickled at the mistake. Sammie wrote a 
letter to the editor, explaining her meteoric 
rise in a game she had never played. 

"To become as good a tennis player as I am 
not," said Sammie's letter, "I would suggest 
my fellow co-eds observe the following rules: 

"1. Drink at least five cokes daily. 

"2. Study faithfully Social Science 22.'!. 

:',." Get at least five hours' sleep (at night 

not in class). 

"4. Let ymir fingernails attain a length of 
approximately one and one-half inches. 

"">. Do not practice tennis. 

"In closing," said Sammie, "let me add that 
the major factor contributing to my success 
may be attributed to my not knowing that a 
tennis tourney was in progress." 

There is still an opportunity for those 
interested in becoming members of the 
Collegian editorial board, provided they 
act on it at once. Stanley Polchlopek, ed- 
itor, will meet all interested in the Col- 
legian office Wednesday evening at 7:00. 
Members of all classes, especially the 
(n shmen, are invited to attend. 

Paniel M. Pearce, Jr., who recently was 
graduated from Harvard University with a 
degree in mechanical engineering, paid part of 
his tuition by performing as a clown at private 

When Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt recently 
received a doctor of laws degree from Wash- 
ington College, Chestertown, Md., it was the 
fi-st time the college ever had awarded an 
honorary degree to a woman. 





Well Known Art Series Opens In 
Memorial Hall With Oil Paintings 

I'rexy (i reels Freshman Coed 

Massachusetts State College opened 
its now well-known annual art series 
in Memorial Hall with an exhibition 
. it* oil paintings done by Stephen (>. 
Maniatty of Old Deerfield. 

The exhibition, open daily to the 
public until October 15, is the first 
in the series of winter exhibits hung 
for the enjoyment and education of 
students and the public under the di- 
re tion of Dr. Frank A. Wautch, emer- 
itus professor of landscape architec- 
ture at the State College and widely 
known for his work in developing 
the Fine Arts programs of the college. 
Landscapes of the Connecticut Val- 
ley predominate in the present exhi- 
bition and give the leading character 
to the show. The wink is fresh and 
vivid in color and the drawing free 
and bold, according to Dr. Waugh. 
The composition is natural and con- 
vincing, never forced or freakish. 

The picture! are the kind that com- 
mon people admire and enjoy, yet 
they are of a type to win approval 
of critics and artists. The paintings 
done during the spring sugar season 
in the maple woods of Massachusetts 
and Vermont are especially rich in 
life and color; they give the crisp 
feeling of the March days so nostalgic 
to the New England heart. 

Mr. Maniatty, the artist, was born 
in Norwich, Connecticut, of Greek 
parents and has spent his life in New 
Ehgland, largely in (Jreenheld, Mass. 
He graduated in 1988 from the Mass- 
achusetts School of Art in Boston and 
for the past six years has been super- 
visor of art in the public schools of 
Deerfield, South Deerfield, Conway, 
Sunderland, Whately, and Hatfield 
This year he is also teaching at the 
Bement school in Old Deerfield. 

He is a prominent member of the 
Deerfield Valley Ait Association; also 
of the Springfield Art League. He has 
exhibited in ("reenfield, Springfield. 
Hartford, Albany, and Philadelphia.

Music Club Schedule 
To Help Boost Morale 

The fall music program opened 
with a rush of activities this week as 
the music department released its 
plans for the coming year, giving 
music a prominent part in the new 
speedup course. The music schedule 
drawn up under the present war con- 
ditions, will include all of last year's 
musical groups; however due to trav- 
elling conditions the student groups 
will remain on campus more. These 
organisations will contribute much as 
"music for morale" becomes the key- 
note <>f the revised campus social 

Tryouts for the freshman choir, 
open to all freshmen men and women 
will be held Thursday October 8th in 
Memorial Hall at 4::i() p. m. The 
choir, which will sing regularly at 
Sunday Vespers Services will join the 
regular varsity clubs at Christmas, 
special functions throughout the year, 
and will work as a unit in the forth- 
coming operetta. The choir offers a 
one year apprenticeship to first year 
Students, anil is a prerequisite for 
joining both clubs, as in years all re- 
placements will be taken from the 
choir. Resides the regular vespers 
hymns they will do special arrange- 
ments of folk son^s. Due to lack of 
facilities the choir will be cut to 
forty members. 

The Women's Glee Club trials will 
be held Thursday ni^ht at 8:30 p. m. 
in room 114 Stockbridge. All interest* 
ed upperclass women should turn out. 

The college band undergoes a 
change in cabinet with the new lead- 
ership being transferred to the music 
department. Doric Alviani, now in 
charge in pledging to keep up the 
high standard of the past, will con- 
tinue the present policy of the band 
appearing in a great many functions 
on and off campus. As any band and 
martial music is more closely allied 
with national morale than the choral 
groups its program for the next few 
months will be quite full. Old mem- 
bsrs ami new freshmen should show- 
up Thursday evening at the Memorial 
Hall auditorium at 7 p. m. Forty men 
to fill the forty uniforms would give 
State the largest band in the valley.

"College Is Packs Of Fun' Say 
Freshmen After A Week At State 

"We never knew there were so 
many people in one place," said the 
freshman girls as they wondered how 
they were ever going to get acquaint- 
ed with all their classmates. 

It all began on that rainy Sunday, 
September 28, when they arrived at 
Butterfield, What a time they had 
amid all the confusion, running about 
the dorm and trying to learn every 
one's name at once. 

Monday morning found them all 

at Memorial Hall registering, puzzling 
over their schedules, and reading their 
new handbooks and Freshman Week 

That nitfht at Butterfield, after the 
house had closed, all the Freshman 
Kills went to an informal party. The 
WSGA Council was there and explain- 
ed the house and campus rules and 
also gave some helpful advice on dat 
in^ and rushing. 

And then on Tuesday began that 

hateful three day ordeal all Fresh- 
men must endure mental tests. 
"Mental is right," they, "We never 
knew tests like that could be so hard. 
And did we feel stupid when we came 
out!" x 

Wednesday they went to their first 
Convocation, all of them in those hat-

cember 1th and 5th as those in the 
say don't want to take chances on the 
enlisted reserve, take form Friday 
afternoon, whe ntryouts for the prin- 
cipal parts take plnce. Freshmen, join 
the upperclassmen at the Memorial 
Hall auditorium at 4:30 p. m. for 
your chance at one of the leads. 

\t night they came trooping down 
the hill from Butterfield to the sing 
led by Doric Alviani, ami when tiny 
saw him Sgain at the Rally Thurs- 
day night, they raved about him — 
they thought he was wonderful. 

Thursday morning another exper- 
ience confronts the Freshman girls 
they attended their first college class 
es. "It was just as we expected, "they 
said, "but a little more exciting the 
first time." They liked their teachers, 

Then came Friday night and the 
Freshman reception. The Memorial 
Hall was crowded, but finally they 
did meet President and Mrs. Baker 
ami Mr. and Mrs. Machmer. After 
that, refreshment, ami then dancing 
upstairs. That night they all gathered 
in each other's rooms and talked ex- 
citedly Of the reception until the small 
hours of the morning. 

Saturday, as you all know, the 
Freshmen won the rope pull, and 
the Freshmen girls have their opinion 
on that, too. They think the Sopho- 
more boys were good sports to take 
the loss of the rope pull with no 
hard feeling, and to shake hands with 
the Freshmen the way they did. 

Saturday night, Butterfield was a 
bedlam, as almost everyone went out 

on a date. 

Sunday all the girls went to church, 
And in the afternoon, many of them 
went out for the Freshman choir. 
Perhaps it was because Doric Alviani 
had already gotten them into the hab- 
it of singing. 

Monday morning the Freshmen 
were awakened by strange sounds 
out in front of Butterfield It was the 
Freshman boys who had come up to 
serenade them. So they quickly comb- 
ed their hair and put on lipstick, then 
leaned out of the front windows to 
Watch and heckle their poor ci. 

Now that you know what the I < 
man girls did all last week. And by 
this time. th<\v have formed some 
opinions, too. They like the food at 
Butterfield, but they don't like to 
stand in line to get it. They don't 
mind the climb up the hill too much, 
but they think an escalator would lie 
a good idea. They like the "feeds" 
in their rooms at night, and they 
think blind dates are rather exciting. 
They all like their rooms, and their 
proctors, too. They are still trying to 
get acquainted with everyone, but it 
in so hard, because there are so many 
people to know. All in all, they are 
stili a little bewildered, and excited, 

too. "But. Jeeperst", they nay, "Col- 
lege is packs of fun!"

gallantry in action at Port Moresby,

(I.) Is hereby awarded (posthumous- 
ly | .he "Silver Star" for gallantry in 
action during the perfrmance of an 
aerial flight against an armed enemy. 

'Corporal Hammond, a gunner on 
a B-2;"ic type airplane on a recon- 
naissance mission in the New Guinea 
ana on May 7, 11)42 fought off a 
persistent attack by a Zero type 
enemy plane. This attack lasted 45 
minutes and during the action Corp- 
oral Hammond was severely wounded

The spirit exemplified by Corporal 
Hammond and his determination to

is in keeping with the finest combat 
standard of the Army Forces. 

By direction of the President, Corp-

Corporal Hammond who was an 
excellent gunner was killed in a crash 
landing of a B-25 Medium Bomber 
which was forced down by severe

A new set of air raid warning sig- 
nals was announced at opening convo- 
cation by Prof. Raymond T. Park- 
hurst, chairman of the college ARP. 
ihe college unit functions as a part 
of the town system which works in 
cooperation with the Massachusetts 
Committee for Civilian Defense. 

Park hurst also issued a call for 
volunteers who are asked to make 
known their desire to serve either to 
Prof. Walter Hargesheimer or to Miss 
Ruth Stevenson. There are vacancies 
in police, fire, and first aid services 
as well as in others. 

Attention was called to the new 
audible signal which has been ap- 
proved by the Massachusetts Commit- 
tee on public safety. The mobijization 
signal consists of three short blasts 
and one long repeated for four min- 
utes. At this signal all ARP units 
mobilize. Activities of the public con- 
tinue as usual. 

There is normally no audible signal 
for the blue alert. All street lights 
will be extinguished and private lights 
will conform as soon as possible. 

The alarm will be a series of short 
blasts which will be repeated for three 
minutes. At this signal all must seek 
shelter. ..

Grid Mentor Praises 
Team For Fine Spirit 

• We learned plenty m the Connec- 
ticut game and \\c should he a Letter

Coach Walter Hargesheimer as he 

continued preparations for the Ver- 

mont game Saturday in Kurlington. 
The grid mentor revealed that the 
team, except for some misiakes in 
judgment, played good hall, and that 
lack of conditioning and greeni 

caused the final period downfall. The 

team played very well in the first half, 
but lacked the stamina to keep it up 

for the final two periods. 
Like Connecticut, the Vermont team 

has had mote experience and practice. 

The snemi star hslfeaoh, Lapointe, is 
the child threat to ■ local victory. He 
bai scored m both Vermont contests 
and has revealed plenty of skill and 

speed. However, the local gihluei 

have a speedy and <rafty group to 
match the opponent's ace. Coach Har- 
gexheimer stre ted the fact that the 
1942 MSC squad is the most spirited 
group to have worn the togs in years.

Robert Frost, New England Poet, 
Will Speak Tomorrow Evening 
At First Social Union Program 

Robert Frost, great contemporary 
poet, will speak at the Social Union 
tomorrow evening, October 10, in the 

Bowker Auditorium at 8:15 p. m. As 
an informal member of the faculty at 
Amherst College in the late 20's, he 
was very popular as a lecturer here 
in Amherst. Since then he has paid 
several visits to the town to lecture. 
Frost was born in San Francisco, 

Cal., but is now known as a New Eng- 
land poet. His poetry brings this sec- 
tion of the country to life, and it is 
greatly beloved by all who read or 
hear it. 

In 1924, his collection New Hamp- 
shire won the Pttilitser Prize. He has 

been so recognised twice since 

then; once in lD.'U and again in 1987. 

His first professorship at Amherst 
was in HMO. At this time, he showed 
himself to be different than the or- 
dinary professor by putting on 50 
minute versions of Shakespeare's 
plays the first spring he was here. 

After he had left Amherst he be- 
came co-founder of the Rread Loaf 
School <>f English at hfiddlebury Col- 
lege in Vermont, In 102I, he went 
to University of Michigan, where he 
was ; , poet in residence, in which posl 
tion he had no teaching responsibil- 

Frost does not believe in fancy es- 
thetics. He writes only when in the 
mood He explains "A poem begins 
with a lump in the throat; a home- 
i-kness or a love-sickness. It is a 
reaching out toward expression; an 
effort to find fulfillment. A complete 
poem is one where emotion has found 
its thought and the thought has found 
the words."

New Honor System 
Adopted By W.S.G.A. 

At the first meeting of the WSGA, 
held October X, it was announced 
that the signing out system would 
become an honor system. The girls 
are to report to their house councils, 
voluntarily, if they have been late. 
Girls who live off campus, will report 
to the Off Campus Council on the 
following Wednesday at 4:.10 in the 
WSGA room. The council will excuse 
the infraction or give demerits, de- 
oending on the case. On the basis 
of the number of demerits the in- 
dividual may be asked to report to 
the WSGA Council. 

This system places the responsi- 
bility upon the girls individually. 
The new system will also lighten the 
burden of the secretary whose duty- 
it was to record the lateness of each 
e-irl as taken from the signing out

is excellent while we are limited to those 
who can meet our requirements. 

Furthermore the schedule of Massa- 
chusetts State is studded with teams 
which have an extensive prep school 
feeder system. This means that our op- 
ponents have experienced men to work 
with while we have only tfreen fresh- 
men. Our opponents play transfers 
while we must abide by the ruling of 
the New England Conference. 

The transfer situation is particularly 
obnoxious. Amherst, our leading oppon- 
ent, is playing two outstanding trans- 
fers. One is a man with two years' ex- 
perience at Dartmouth, another has one 
year's experience at Harvard. Our lone 
transfer is forced to sit on the bench 
because of a rule adopted by the New 
England Conference. 

The Intercollegiate Athletic Board 
should take heed of the fact that the de- 
velopment of football at this college is 
being retarded by rules and regulations 
formulated not by those with whom we 
hive sports dealing but rather by those 
who have no interest in us and we no 
interest in them. 

Football is one of the best ways to 
build up the college both from the point 
of view of student spirit and from the 
point of view of public approbation. It 
Is high time for those responsible for 
our membership to vote us out. This 
could and should be accomplished by 
the end of the month when we play

one of the situations most Irritating 

to the fottoweM of the Massachusetts 
State Collegi football team is the rather 
pointless membership of the Stat, I al- 
lege in the New England Confereno 

Examination of the reasons back oi 
the format* n of this conference leads 
not only to the conclusion that member- 

lp ;,, the conference is pointless, but 
also that the conference has no reason 

for existence. 

principle reason for the forma- 
tion of the conference appears to be 
establishment of uniform eligibility 

rules This appears to be sound reason- 
ing but unfortunately it breaks down 
as soon as the question of who is in- 
volved is asked. Membership in the con- 
ference appears to be limited to the Uni- 
versities of Maine. New Hampshire, 
Connecticut, Northeastern, Rhode Isl- 
and State College, and Massachusetts 
slate College. 

Examination of the football schedules 
of any of these colleges mentioned re- 
veals the interesting fact that not one 
of these teams plays all the others in 
the conference. In fact, in the case of 
Massachusetts State only two of these 
teams appear as opponents in football 
(Connecticut and Rhode Island) while 
only one (Connecticut) appears as an 
opponent in swimming. 

This would seem to indicate quite 
clearly that the New England Confer- 
ence is not a playing conference which 
in other parts of the country is the only 
reason for the existence of a conference. 

This also means that rules and regula- 
tions are formulated for Massachusetts 
State athletes without any considera- 

>n for the schedule and conditions we 
f ;ce. We stand out as being the only 

hool in the conference to have en- 
trance requirements. All the other 
schools in the conference require only 
graduation from high school as an en- 
trance 4 requirement. With high school 
graduation as the only prerequisite for 
entrance, it is obvious that the possibil- 
ity for importation of football players

Art Tatum is a gent whom we have 
been trying to understand for a long 
time. Our efforts have taught us this 
much. Art is a piano player's piano play- 
er. He is a supreme technician, He is 
i ripulsive and moody. He is too subject- i 
ive to understand completely, and to 

und< ; 'stand him a little requires a dose 
examination and a knowledge of what 
he is trying to do. 

Some say that Tatum is blind. (So 
what! Wasn't Milton?) General Morgan, 
pianist for Red Allen, and an ardent 
admirer and disciple of Tatum, says 
that Art can see well enough to cheat 
at pinnocle. But then, Mel Powell, ex- 
Goodman pianist and arranger, still 
claims to be nineteen years old. Joe 
Sullivan, of the Chicago Sullivans, tells 
us that Mel has been claiming the same 
for seven years. 

while we're on the subject of piano 
players we'd like to mention two who 
are less eccentric than the latter lot. 
Teddy Wilson's latest contribution to 
jazz is a fine four record album for 
Columbia. The choice of numbers is one 
good reason why the collection is of the 
best. Body and Soul, I Can't Get Started, 
These Foolish Things. Smoke Gets in 
Your Eyes, Rosetta, China Boy, I Know- 
That You Know, and Them There Eyes 
; could not be played with more inspira- 
tion than by Wilson. 

Jess Stacy plays beautifully with Bob 
Crosby on Exstacy and Brass Boogie 
(Decca) Notice how conscientious Jess 
is when he's at work. 

Walter Kreutz was elected most popular, 
most handsome and most active man at Loyola 
University of New Orleans. 

The season's first Informal will be 
held Saturday night at the Drill Hall.

Last Sunday a sorrowful but impres- 
sive ceremony was held among the fra- 
grant skunk cabbage of the beautiful, 
borough of Brooklyn. After having re- 
posed in state for two weeks while 
thousands of sad-eyed, garlic-breathed 
Brooklynites viewed the collective corps, 
the onetime pride of Flatbush, the 
Brooklyn Dodgers, were committed to 
the dust from which they came. Their 
epitaph reads: 

"Dese were de Bums, who passed 

from sight. 
Dey didn't play dere Cards quite 

Riddle of the week: Why is Harry 
Sloper (or, for that matter, anyone else 
whose head has grown out of the top 
of his hair) like an apple? Answer: Be- 
cause he is a Bald-one. 

We found ourselves rather baffled to 
learn that while freshmen are eligible 
for football this fall, transfers are not. 
Upon conferring with one of the not- 
ible sports experts of this section, we 
learned that the proper authorities are 
considering a ruling prohibiting the use 
of freckled faced players in intercolle- 
giate competition, because of the annual 
mean rainfall of the Connecticut Valley 
and vicinity. This seemed to us a very 
comprehensive ruling, and one worthy 
of deep deliberation. 

Rumor has it that there is a new- 
housemother in our midst, who is doing 
her best to make life easier for her co-ed 
charges by helping them do many of the 
unpleasant little tasks which are part 
of our everyday college life. We hear 
that she has even offered to relieve the 
girls of the rather cumbersome burden 
of bidding boy friends goodnight, in one 
form or another. 

Last year the Peanut Gallery carried 
exclusive news of nativity of the litter 
of Dutchess, celebrated Royal Wolf- 
hound of Sig Ep. This year we are go- 
ing to continue this service, and are 
proud to announce that the gentle lady 
is expected to receive a bundle from 
heaven in the not too distant future, 
about December 12. 

Despite the war, the historic Fessen- 
den Sweepstakes run three days a week 
by freshmen between the Chem Build- 
ing and the Cafe, at 11:50 a. m., is still 
as hotly contested as ever. The rich 
purse of being first to put on the feed 
bag has not been decreased, and injuries 
are no higher than in the past. 

For Freshmen Only 

by Igno Ramus 

After fairly offering his services to 
three governmental agencies, one of 
your professors spent the first two 
months of the long summer vacation of 
1942 in revising two of the courses 
which he teaches. Then, before tackling 
a similar job with two other courses, 
he decided to spend a two-week's (it 
stretched to three) vacation reading in 
.he general field of education, teaching 
ind learning. Being somewhat disillu- 
sioned and befogged after many years 
>f incarceration in a seat (I wonder 
why they use that term) of higher 
learning, and in a somewhat critical and 
questioning state of mind, he started 
:o jot down notes on what he read, and 
found, when the three weeks were up, 
that he had quite a grist of scholasms, 
sarcasms, epigrams, and platitudes. He 
then played solitaire with these random 
jottings; and, although he quickly dis- 
covered that there were more than four 
suits in the deck, he found that they 
could be arranged into somewhat log- 
ical pal terns. 

The results will appear in the Colleg- 
ian as a "weekly do/en" throughout the 
1942-4."> college year. Some of the state- 
ments were taken verbatim: some are 
rehashes of what the authors said or 
implied; a very few may be more or less 
original: so for safety's sake, they will 
all appear in quotes. They will be pre- 
sented In the form of questions and in 
the optimistic hope that they may lead 
to some added cerebration in the field 
which should be of some interest to 
each of us, our own education. 


"Your college is a place of great im- 
portance. It is a place from which men 
itart for the eternal city. In the college 
are pictured the ideals which abide in 
the city of God. Many roads lead to 
that haven and those who are here 
have travelled by different paths toward 
the goal. My way has been by the ocean 
of the law. On that I have learned a part 
of the great lesson, the lesson not of 
law but of life."— Justice O. W. Holmes.

New Camera Club Exhibit 
Opens Today At Goodell 

The annual exhibition of photographs 
from the North Shore Camera Club 
went on display in the Goodell Library 
today, where it will remain until Oc- 
tober 28. 

The North Shore Club is among the 
better clubs and attracts fine workers 
from a radius of several towns. Because 
of the excellent programs and keen com- 
petitions of the club, its members are 
the serious advanced amateurs rather 
than the casual picture shooter. Thus, 
their show reflects fine technical render- 
ing of carefully chosen subject material. 
The leading print of the exhibition, 
entitled "Fantasy.' is the work of L. 
Whitney Standish, the so called pace- 
setter of the North Shore Club. "On the 
Wings of The Wind," and "Sandy," fine 
child studies by Vance are also among 
the best pictures. L. C. Eastman con- 
tinues his specialty of flower subjects 
with two excellent photographs. "Eve- 
ning Mist," by Muller is excellent for its 
atmospheric quality. 

For technically fine photographs re- 
flecting New England conservatism in 
the selection of pleasing, dignified sub- 
ject matter we recommend this exhibit.

Play Day Initiates The 
Frosh Co-eds To Sports 

Freshman co-eds got their first taste 
of sports at M.S.C. last Saturday 
when the Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion presented the second annual 
"Play Day." The chairman of the pro- 
gram was Ruth Baker, president of 
the Association. Things started pop- 
ping at 2:45, when the Modern Dance 
Club, under the direction of "Pinky" 
Smith, gave an exhibition of four 
numbers, a folk dance to the music 
„of the Hungarian Dance No. 5, a solo 
; original by Shirley Cordon, a techni- 
cal study from the Doris Humphrey 
School, called the "Arch March," and 
fas a flashy finale, a "praise de Lord" 
number called simply "Revival," com- 
plete with bandannas and exultation. 
This was followed by a general ex- 
odus to the swimming pool, where the 
water ballet team presented one of its 
_Jusual excellent performances. Swum 
Jto the enchanting rhythm of Strauss 
waltzes, outstanding work was done 
by the group as a whole and especially 
%he 'miniature ballet," a quartet com- 
posed of Mary Jo Mann, Ruth How- 
arth, Dot Colburn, and Jean Linberg.

Frosh Victors Over The 
Sophs In Annual Razoo 

After a hard fought and well- 
matched battle the freshmen emerged 
victorious m this year's Kazoo held 
on last Friday and Saturday at the 
Cage. Of the three boXUl] and three 

tling matches, the sophomores 
won one boxing match and one wrest- 
ling match. The sophomores who won 

were wrestler Herb Cross who pinned 
down Ted Reehenski in minimum time 
and boxer, Art Peek, who outslugged 
Dick Dolan, a Worcester hoy. 

Spurred on by excellent mass cheer- 

ing the freshmen were victorious in 
two wrestling and two boxing match- 
es. Freshman mat man White won over 
Dick Thomas in the 17. r > pound class. 
Bob Steadman, sophomore athlete, was 
overcome in the wrestling by 180 
pound freshman, Frank DeJoia. 

The boxing matches caused plenty 
»f excitement among the fighters and 
the spectators. In 8 snappy glove duel 
Frank Ditoma defeated Bob Butler, 
sophomore Maroon Key president. 
Both duelists were in the 150 pound 
class and were exceptionally well 
matched. Referee Art Koulias had his

Stockbridge outpointed Vermont 
Academy in all departments last Sat- 
urday as they rolled to a 7-0 triumph. 
The score came in the third quarter. 
The drive, featuring "Red" Stevens 
and Sil Adamo, started on Vermont's 
35 yard line. Four plays later, Stevens 
crashed ever from the 5 yard marker 
for the first tally of the year. Paul 
Marsoubian came into the fray and 
split the uprights with a place kick 
to make the score 7-0. 

Twice in the first period, the Stock- 
bridge eleven crashed their way inside 
the opponent*! 20 yard line, once to 
the one, but each time Vermont rose 
to meet the threat. When the first half 
ended, the "Aggies" had just lost the 
ball to Vermont on the latter's 3 yard 


Stockbridge threatened once in the 
final quarter. A long pass from Bak 
just escaped Adamo in the end zone. 
The final gun sounded soon after, and 
Stockbridge had won the first game of 

the season. 

The team looked good. Stevens and 
Bak were human "battering rams" as 
they smashed through Vermon't front 
wall. They had difficulty too, stopping

The Debating club has announced 
its plans for the coming year and 
will organize at the first meeting 
Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 in the Old 
Chapel. This meeting is open to fresh- 
men and upperclassmen who wish to 
debate in either the freshman debat- 
ing society or the varsity group. 

Due to existing war conditions, the 
club is limited to off-campus debates 
with nearby colleges, namely Ameri- 
can International College, Smith, Mt. 
Holyoke, and Amherst. In addition, 
there will be intramural and interclass 
debates. Other activities for the club 
include discussions with various cam- 
pus and local organizations. 

Members of the club hope to attend 
the New England Intercollegiate Mod- 
el Conference at Rhode Island State 
, College. This series of discussions 
served as the best practical experience 
for those who attended, and they hope 
to benefit by these conferences again. 

The major change in debating by 
the local organization this year is the 
dropping of the old formal style of 
debate in favor of the cross-examina- 
tion and discussion type.

Mr. Frost, three-time Pulitiser 

prise winner, recounted some of his 
early experiences in poetry. His first 
■n;it at rei S writing was when 
he was fifteen yean old, and was 
composed while be was walking home 
from school. It had to do with hist'o 
leal characters, and as the poet him- 
self explained, "It was really just a 
iumble of sentences, turned around 

any which way so long M the last 
words rhymed." His first poem to be 
accepted for publication and for which 
he was paid, was written when he had 
been out of high school only a year 
or so. He thought his future was then 
definitely assured as a poet, and was 
very sadly disappointed when no one 
paid him any further attention. It 
was quite a long time before he at- 
tained any since

Dr. Hale H. Sieling, research pro- 
fessor of chemistry at Massarhusets

Mr. I.overude has an All American 
point of view of the differences in our

I ;l st Friday night only 800 of the 900 
who came to hear Robert Frorthad the 
ambition to get to Stockbrdge Hall ijif- 
ftc iently early to attend the Rhode W- 
and rally. Again OH Saturday afternoon 
the loudest thing on the football field 
was the referee*, whistle. These hap- 
peningfl would seem to indicate that 
school spirit and enthusiasm on the 
of the student body for athletics 
ftdly lacking. 
TMis Friday night Adelphia will hold 
another rally in front of Stockbridge 
Hall. Freshmen should all make a spe- 
cial effort to attend Certainly the mem- 
ben of the football team should not be 
allowed to get the impression that the 
members of the student body are not 
interested in backing them. 


One of the brighter spots on the grid- 
iron Saturday afternoon was the per- 
formance of the State College band for 
the first time under the direction of 
Doric Alviani and Drum Major Bob Ber- 
tram. Last year the band was conspicu- 
ous at football games by the noise it 
did not make. This year the band is fill- 
ing in all the time out periods with mu- 
sic and doing a good job of it. 

More power to the bandsmen. 

The War Department has issued spe- 
cial orders that none of the reserves 
here at the college are to be called up 
till after a week from Friday, which is 
the date for Campus Varieties. After 
the mirth and hilarity which will pre- 
vail througout Bowker Auditorium at 
that time, the morale of the potential 
warriors from MSC will be so hi?h 
that everybody from here will probably 
be made Gigadier Brindels, as soon as 
they have completed basic training. 
Anyone failing to attend this stupend- 
ous production will immediately be 
banished to Brooklyn for the duration, 
a fate worse than death. 

One of our bearded spies informed 
us that at the Informal last Saturday 
night, the doors and windows of the 
historic Drill Hall were boarded up and 
the heat turned on full blast in order 
to increase the sale of non-alcoholic 
liquid refreshment. Next time the dance 
could be held in one of the places we 
have lived around campus, and the en- 
terprising gentlemen could double their 
prifits selling hot coffee, red flannels, 
and fur muffs. 

The dance itself was a howling suc- 
cess. Music was supplied by Vic Trola 
and his orchestra. 

The fall football campaign continues 
this week when Worcester Tech rolls 
into town on an oversized slide rule. As 
far as written history shows. Tech's 
last gridiron victory was against the 
University of Egypt in 49 B.C when 
the pride of the Nile was coached by 
Cleopatra, and had Mark Antonv as its 
plunging back. 

Mysterious tappings coming from far 
under Phi Sig have at last been decoded, 
and they inform us that Cosy Ed Neb- 
eski has taken over that black hole of 
Calcutta formerly known as Thayer 
Caverns, The name has now been chang- 
ed to Cosy Ed's Crummy Cave. 

Alpha Sig, who offers the same sane- ; 
tity to orhan seniors that Sig Ep offers 
to orphan dogs and Stoekbridgmen, J 
has taken a large group of the nation's 
future greats in as borders. (For a list 
of meal prices see Bokina.) This opera- 
tion of putting the feed bag on in said 
house is known as gorging at the Gam- 
ma Chapter. Some people say it is gorg- 
ing, and some people say it is'nt gorg- 
ing. What are you going to do in a case 
like that ?

secure representation on the Academic 
Activities Board. If granted, sooner or 
later the group will suggest a realloca- 
tion of the student tax in order to full- 
fill their purpose. And their purpose? 
To bring to the campus at the cost of 
several hundred dollars one or two men

We were thinking the other day about 
the good old days of King Oliver. Those 
were the days when jazz was made, the 
days that were responsible for the late 
Jelly Roll Morton saying, "Man, I in- 
vented jazz." And he wasn't all wrong. 
He was one of the boys who did. Did 
you ever hear Jelly Roll knock himself 
out on Blue Blood Blues? We don't 
know how old the record is, but probably 
Victor has forgotten waxing it. King 
Oliver is on the other side of Blue Blood 
and his jazz is about a half a century 
old. Then there's inventor Morton on 
Though 1 Heard Buddy Bolton Say. Yes 
the days of Buddy Bolton were the good 
dd days. We'll do a column on the quot- 
able Mr. Bolton some day. 

The days of King Oliver are the days 
when a little darky used to follow the 
King around like a beagle hound drag- 
ging his tin horn behind him. He was 
a little guy named Louis Armstrong; 
perhaps you've heard of him. He's the 
same Louis who, a few years later, used 
to play in a second floor ballroom (or 
was it a barroom?) across the street on 
Beale St., from King Oliver's shanty. 
The King would wait, listening for his 
little boy, and when he heard him, he'd 
throw open his window and shout, "Boy, 
I'll blow you right out of town " Then 
Louis would throw open his window and 
the two of them would send blazing 
trumpet notes back and forth across 
the street until the vice squad was called 

Yes. those were the good old days, 
and the days five or ten years later 
were the good old days too. Those were 
the days when King Oliver's protege 
moved from New Orleans up to Chicago 
and soon discovered that a little white 
boy was following him around just like 
he used to hound the King. That little 
guy was Francis "Muggsy" Spanier, and 
perhaps you've heard of him too. That 
was the same Muggsy who years later 
was flat on his back in the Touro Sani- 
tarium thinking that his playing days 
were over. That was the time when Joe 
Bushkin walked in and talked Muggsy 
out of quitting. He did such a convinc- 
ing job that the two of them wrote a 
song on the spot and called it RelaxirT 
at the Touro. We were listening to that 
number just the other day and Joe on 
piano and Muggsy on horn were so 
good that we began thinking that may- 
be today's days are the good old days 

and a more tender conscience ? 

8. An appreciation of beauty and a 
loathing of vileness in all forms? 

9. A better job or Ail-American rat- 

10. An ability to carry a "snoot-

improved judgment?

knowledge into wisdom ?

Dear Pedagogues : 

The opinion has been voiced by many 
of you and is no doubt held by still more 
of you, that modern American youth, 
especially college youth, is woefully dec- 

Our illustrious compatriots, the male 
members of the student body have in- 
deed shown themselves to be quite soft 
physically— as has been proved beyond 
a shadow of a doubt by the compulsory 
phys. ed. program. However, we females 
hold ourselves to be superior in this re- 
tpect. Therefore, taking advantage of 
the present crisis, we challenge to you 
the faculty, whom we think are guilty 
of the above mentioned vice. In other 
words, dear faculty, we think you're 

soft ! 

Ergo (this means therefore), we dare 
you to evacuate your noble seats of 
'earning to be placed by us upon your 

:ble seats! 

The place: Hockey Field. 

The Time: Your earliest inconven- 


Rules of combat: Definitely honorable.

Editor, The Massachusetts Collegian 

Massachusetts State College 
Amherst, Massachusetts 
. car Sir: 

Your recent editorial. New England Con- 
ference, clarities, a situation which has vague- 
ly bothered many undergraduates and alumni 
for some time. I say vaguely, because the im- 
plications of membership in the conference 
have oever been fully made known. 

Although a New England land grant col- 
lege, Massachusetts State is unique among 
e institutions, and certainly State differs 
om the ivy league schools with private en- 
dowment* First, Bfl you said, this college has 
let standards for entrance which even football 
an must meet. That is very well— but do 
OUT opponents require their prospective ath- 
letes to meet equally high standards? Second- 
ly, this college can offer little in the way of 
athletic scholarships. I sually the best that can 
b2 promised is a job. What might be called 
"geopolitical" circumstances handicap college 
officials in any effort they may wish to make 
' ward the improvement of athletics or any- 
thing else. 

This situation adds more emphasis to the 
■"act that this college is a misfit in the New 
England Conference. Because of some of the 
factors outlined above, our situation is diffi- 
■llt enough without further handicapping the 
teams by playing opponents who do not follow 
the same rules we do. It seems that those who 
Hire charge of such things owe it to the stu- 
dents and alumni to place a team on the field 
>n as even terms as possible with the oppo- 
nent. If the only way to equalize our teams 
s by withdrawing from the conference, the 
"ourse to be taken is clear. 

The traditional reply to any editorial or 
communication concerning athletics expresses 
i desire to avoid "paying" athletes, to avoid 
favoritism for athletes, and definitely to avoid 
any tinge of commercialism. That type of phil- 
nrmhy is grand. But can we have that kind of 
nhilosophy and still meet those who have long 
s'nee given up that idea of athletics and re- 
alized that the greatest value today in athletics 
•s the publicity given the college, and the en- 
joyment given the spectators? Sad, but true, 
the physical and moral uplift for the partici- 
pants is usually of secondary consideration. 

All of which amounts to the fact that if 
State is going to make any real all around suc- 
"e-s in all types of athletics, we must either 
change our philosophy or our opponents — and 
where can we find opponents that meet our 

Sincerely yours,

State came back last Friday after 
being banded a trouncing at the hands 
of a taller Dartmouth outfit to score 

in the last half and tie Coast Guard 

one to one. 

The State squad showed Improve- 
ment ill their defensive tactics to hold 
the Coast Cuardsnien scoreless in the 
second half after a finely executed 
play set up the first goal. 

The Statesmen s.ored in the third 
period with Johnny Giannotti getting 
the score tying goal. This score was 
made possible by Phil Iiampietro who 
smashed into the Coast Guard goalie 
causing him to drop the ball in a posi- 
tion where Johnny could easily score. 

Giannotti was easily the outstanding 
man on the State squad because, after 
having played a brilliant defensive 
game at goal in the first half, shifted 
to an inside position in the second 
half to pull State out.

Outing Club Dance 

Springfield College is sponsor- 
ing a six college barn dance at 
Springfield this Saturday night. 
Arrangements have been made for 
visiting club members to spend 
the night at the Freshman Camp, 
and visitors are asked to bring 
their own blankets. State clubbers 
will make the trip by bicycle, the 
group leaving Amherst center at 
L80. Food will be provided at 
Springfield for a nominal sum. 
All members and interested per- 
sons are invited. 

The first meeting of the club 
will be held in Bowditch 1-H club 
house next Wednesday, Oct. 28, 
at 7:30. The business meeting and 
discussion of the fall program will 
be followed by refreshments and 
square darning, with Mr. Loy of 
the extension service doing the 
calling and giving some much 
needed instruction. Everyone is 
welcome to attend. 




hv Holi Burke 

To steal the phrase of a certain 

Mew York columnist, orchids to Coach 
Hargeabeimer for the most improved 

State squad to see action on Alumni 
field in many a moon. We think this 
was demonstrated rather conclusively 
in last Saturday's game against Rhode 
Island. Do we bear a chorus of pro- 
tests screaming "21 -»»"? So all right 

state lost the game but there arc 

tWO ways of looking at the defeat. 

One, Stale was beaten becaii-e it did 
n't have any choice in the matter, or. 
State was beaten, as we prefer to 
think, because of some bad breaks. 

I nderatand, we're not saying that 

Rhode Island didn't deserve the game 
they diil. They played smart, beads 

p ball and woe cagey enough to cap 

italize on State mis-cues at the proper 
times. But on the other hand. State 
looked so good in between these mis- 
that they were hardly a team to 
be taken lightly. Rhode [aland found 
this out in most of the first half as 
they were held scoreless until the 
State defenses slackened long enough 
for two scores to be pushed over. In 
the third period, it looked as though 
State was ready to roll as they pushed 
within 20 yards of the Rhody jr,, ; ,l 
only to have an interception and a !)<)- 
yard run make them look sad. Twice 
more a score was imminent only to 
have the offense stalled near the goal. 
But let's look at some of the high- 
lights. Certainly anyone who saw Don 
Campbell must have had a great deal 
of admiration for his ability as he was 
whacked time and time again only to 
bounce right back running, passing 
and kicking. And Ed Fedeli turned in 
some fine running not to mention tin- 
work of Ward Shannon at half along 
with Franny Keough. And Dick Nor- 
ton was at his usual position at the 
bottom of the heap on almost every 
play but not many were getting by 

So State lost sure — but in so do- 
ing, the boys showed spirit and fight. 
Frankly, we were beginning to doubt 
the existence of such qualities in 
State teams. B.B.B.

Tech Game Saturday To Mark 43rd 
Anniversary Of Gridiron Rivalry 

Both Squads Weak In Reserve Power And Injuries 
Will Prove Costly; Two Teams Evenly Matched 

Briggsmen To Tackle 
Trinity This Friday 

Having redeemed themselves with a 

tie with (oast Guard, the Statesmen 

are out to continue their winning 
ways. The improved squad will be 

even better this week, as Coach Rriggs 
has some advance information on the 
Trinity team which will perform on 
Alumni Field this Friday afternoon. 
As a whole the Statesmen are in 
better physical condition now than 
they have been since their first game 

with the University of Connecticut 

Algie Vurgstas who has been out with 

a bad leg will undoubtedly see action 

■ will Joe Kokoski who has been 

bothered with ear trouble. I'hil Iam- 
pietro. who was roughed up quite a 
bit in the Coast Guard game, is again 
ready for action. 

Steve Czarnicki who replaced the 

injured Vurgstas in the Coast Guard 

tilt showed up so well in that contest 
that he will undoubtedly be on hand 
to team up with Captain Eddie Podo- 
lak at the full back positions. The 

halfbacks Will remain as in previous 

fames the two Gizienskis and Walker. 
per and Donovan will be the wings, 
Iampietro the center forward, and Ko 

koski and Stebbins the insides. John 
Giannatti will be in the cage unless 

tl <• is a last minute change by- 
Coach BripgS which will put Giannatti 
at Stebbins* position and Howie Bangs, 

a senior who showed np very well dur

game, a1 the vacant net-minding post.

The Worcester Teili Engineers will 

bring a victory starved comhinat nm 
to Amherst Saturda.s afternoon in 
an effort to crash the win column fof 

the first time this year. The States- 
men will be in the same boat after 
losing tWO heart breakers in a row to 

Vermont ami Rhode Island. Although 

both teams have shown great improve- 
ment since the start of the season, 
Tech has had the advantage of a stif- 
fer schedule to date. 

The outcome of the pigskin tuaali 
will depend largely on the strength 
and stamina of the starting players. 
Moth teams being pitifully weak in 
B erve power, the start inr; eleven! 
will have to shoulder the burden al- 
most the whole way. The armed serv 
ices and injuries have taken their toll 
of players at Worcester Teh and 
Massachusetts as elsewhere. 

The Maroon and White combine 
will be intact for this Saturday ex- 
cept for Warren Anderson who is still 
recovering from a side injury re- 
ceived in the tilt with Vermont. The 
Baystaters are also still without the 

services of Red Warner and Bob 
Place who were injured early in this 

The Tech State rivalry is one of the 

" t ancient and honored in New 
England. This year marks the Hrd 
anniversary of the duel. The Bay 

st iters creamed the Engineers 82-0 
last year, partially on account of a 
few timely breaks that led to quick 


State will probably start the gSUBM 
with the same lineup that tailed last 
week with the exception of Johnny 
Storozuk, speedy guard who has been 
selected captain for tins week and 
will be promoted to the tatting 

Tech can be counted mi t" tuin in 
its beat game of the year aiainst t he 

Baj '.iter , ami from this writing the 

contest looms as a tosstip from all 
angles. Both teams have their share 
of fleet footed backs, while in the line 
there seems to be little difference in 
either weight or ability. May the best 
m win.

Stockbridge Finishes Home Season 
With Win Over Cushing Academy 

In thfi last home frame of the sea- 
son, Couch Ball's gridsters rolled over- 
Cushing Academy 21-2. It was the 
first time Cushing had lost to Stock- 
bridge in five Kames. 

Stockbridge scored three time* in 
the second «|tiarter. Sil Adamo, on a 
reven a from Bak, knifed his way 
from the Cushing 80, through left 
tackle, and with good blocking, eluded 
the secondary to score standing up. 
Paul Marsoubian, injured in a scrim- 
mage earlier in the week, entered the 
game and kicked the extra point. 
Stockbridge led 7-0. 

on the first play after the kickoff, 
Joe Bak intercepted a Cushing aerial 
and raced 41 yards for another tally. 
Marsoubian kicked the extra point to 
make the score 14-0. The final Stock- 
bridge touchdown resulted from a 
pass interception by Tryon on the 
Cushing IS yard line. Adamo on a 
reverse, reached the 16 before he was 
forced outside. Here Captain "Red" 
Stevens took command, and with five 
consecutive line plunges plowed over 
the final stripe. Paul Marsoubian con- 
nected for the third point after touch- 
down and the score was Stockbridge 
21, Cushing 0. 

Cushing threatened only once. In 
the third period they drove to the one 
fo t line where they were stopped 
dead by Stockbridge's front wall

of the end <>ne while punting, giving

Hort Show Situation 
Cuts Activity Sharply 


Hitler's assault on the Hart. Show 
has left the students with only a skel- 
eton of their former leading activity. 
Professor Clark L. Thayer pointed 
out that with a much smaller student 
body interested in the event, it is an 
impossibility to carry on the produc- 
tion as in former years. Also the flor- 
ists who have usually contributed 
have cut down on their exhibits or 
have eliminated them. 

There will be competition in flower 
arrangement and perhaps some in- 
dividual exhibits in miniature using 
the tables in room 105 French Hall.

A specified amount of time, and write 
with a certain limit on the amount of 
prolific writing, Mr Frost could never 
work he had to do. "Real poetry isn't 
like that," he explained. "I might 
write a poem tomorrow and then 
might not feel like writing another 
one for six months or so. It's some- 
thing inside of you — a clear, sharp 
impression that has to be expressed. 
I do my writing sitting in the same 
chair I read in, and scribble in an old 
notebook or a scrap of paper." 

When asked whether or not he had 
any particular favorite among Amer- 


ican poets, the Bard of New England 
remarked— "It is almost impossible 
for me to single out any one poet as 
being better than another. They are 
all individuals, and posess qualities 
which are theirs alone. However, I 
do like to retain old favorites, and I 
think Kdgar Allen Poe was my first 
favorite. His poetry is so easy to 
•ead and he had a true poetic soul." 

Mr. Frost went on to say that for 
§0 V Rmg ii countdy, America had a 
wealth of poetry in the archives of 
her literary history. Of the newer 
crop of poets, he declined to pick any 
promising greats. He said the field 
was too crowded to really distinguish 
now, whose poems would survive. 

When the poet made his appearance 
on stage the entire assembly rose in 
applause. Prof. Rand, head of the 
English department, and a good friend

Newman Club 
Plans Program 

The Newman Club held its first 
meeting last week as a reunion for 
the old members and a welcome for 
tne freshman and transfers. Due to 
existing conditions and changes in 
the club program, new policies were 
impressed as suggestions for the mem- 
ben to consider. 

Robert O'Brien, president, set forth 
a plan for a discussion group to meet 
the first Wednesday of every month 
and talk over with Fr. Lane, the chap- 
lain, current questions of interest to 
every member of the Catholic faith. 
The other officers were introduced 
and each explained his particular part 
in Newman Club work. 

It was voted to have a social and 
a communion breakfast in one of the 
hotels once every two months in addi- 
tion to the monthly discussion pro- 
gram. Kay Stone, vice-president, was 
named chairman of the group plan- 
ning the social. Shirley Mason was 
<civen charge of the breakfasts. 

The committees appointed were to 
lerve for one program and then other 
members would have a chance to 
serve. Representatives in each house 
and dormitory on campus were named 
as club agents.

International Students 
Day On November 17 

International Students Day will be 
observed on November 17 in colleges 
and universities throughout the world, 
it was announced today by Trude W. 
Pratt, General Secretary of Interna- 
tional Student Service. The purpose 
of the Day is to commemorate the 
closing of the Czech universities and 
the brutal murder of over 160 Czech 
Students by the Nazis in Prague on 
November 17, 1839, At the same 
time observance of International Stu- 
dents Day will manifest the determin- 
ation of the free students of the world 
jto fight through to victory. 

Plans for International Students 
K>ay are already far advanced, Mrs. 
ft>ratt said. The International Stu- 
■lents Assembly, which met in Wash- 
ington, D. C, from September 2 to

for the "Second Front" which he fore- 
cast in December 1941 could not be 
made a reality until the spring of 

.Major Ditton travelled all over the 
British dominion and in the Irish Free 
State. He talked with hundreds in 
every walk of life, in the cities and 
in the rural areas. He has witnessed a 

transformation of the industrial life of 
Britain into decentralized, less vulner- 
able production. In his two trips he 
has seen the British prepare grimly 
but confidently to make their islands 
invasion-proof against any possible at- 
tempt by ".Jerry" to cross the channel. 
A native-born American, Major Dit- 
ton ran away from Virginia Military 
Institute in I'.H 1 to volunteer in the 
Canadian Forces. Then followed a

Faculty Accepts 
Coeds Challenge 

My Dear Miss Maguire: 

In your column of last week certain 
undisciplined coeds still suffering from 
ftophomork illusions and probably 
from inferiority complexes so lost 
their heads as to challenge the faculty 
in the field of athletic prowess. Doubt- 
less they have suffered so many de- 
feats in the classroom they are trying 
to find some way of compensating 
their deflated egos. Presumably they 
feel that we are such old dogs that 
here is one area where their youth 
and brawn can conquer our uge and 

Well, if you coeds insist ami if, now 
that we have accepted the challenge, 
you still have any with courage 
enough to meet us, we (pardon our 
yawn.) are willing to chastize them 
again. We cannot exactly say it is 
a pleasure, for defeating students be- 
comes tedious after a while but per- 
haps it is still necessary. We make 
only one provision, namely, that the 
proceeds from such a public demon- 
stration of our prowes be given to 
ome worthy cause and we suggest the 

Campus Community chest. After all, 
your coeds should feel that someone 
benefits from their humiliation. We 
assume the WSGA will provide the 

ambulances for the girls (I'.S. It 
might be well if they had one or two 
for us). 

What hoi Ho what ! and whal not! 
We accept the challenge and await 
your conditions.

Rally To Precede 
Campus Varieties 

Although State as yet is still un- 
certain about being able to procure 
the traditional rain storm, Amherst 
weekend, the foremost social event of 
the fall term will definitely be held on 
Friday and Saturday of this week. 
"Imports" from the nearby colleges 
and cities, as well as coeds, will be the 

guests of Statesmen at Saturday's an- 
nual gridiron contest between State 
and Amherst, at the rally and Campus 
Varieties on Friday before the game, 
and at the fraternity bouse dances OB 
Saturday following the game. 

For those desiring as long and as 
busy a weekend as possible, atten- 
dance at the Amherst -State SOCCer 
game here on Friday afternoon is 
first on the list of weekend activities. 
Captain Ed I'odolak and his team- 
mates promise plenty of action and 
will give their best to add another 
victory to their record. 

On Friday evening the weekend will 
k r ct underway formally with the Am 
berst Rally, spo ns ored by Adclphia, 
held near Stockbridge Hall. The music 
of our new, bigger and better band, 
peeches, college songs and cheers, 
the presentation of the football team 
members, will all contribute in making 
this rally the noisiest, best spirited, 
mo t enthusiastic one of the season. 

Following the rally, Campus V'ai i 
etics, the annual mammoth all cam 
pus star variety show will be held in 
Bowker, under the direction of Murray 
Casper and John Hicks, comedy pro 
ducers of vast fame and great repute. 
Featured in this campus celebrity re 
view sre Ken Collard, Marge Stanton 
and Doris Abramson, who are among 
those providing rhythm and music 
put of the program; and Gordie 
Smith, John Foley and their comical 
colleagues, who will entertain tin- 
audience with comedy of every type 

and description. Songs written by Ellis 
Tallen and Vic I.eonowicz, students, 
will be another feature of this super 
ety production.

The biggest football rally of the 
year will be held tomorrow evening in 
front of Stockbridge Hall at 7:80. By 
Special arrangement with the pro- 
ducers of Campus Varieties, the show 
will not begin in Bowker Auditorium 
until after the rally is over. In fact 
the doors to the auditorium will not 
be opened until after the rally ends. 

This rally, which is held annually 
before the Amherst game, usually 
boasted of a bonfire which this year 
because of the difficulty in securing 
fire protection will not be held. 

Prof. Rollin H. Barrett, one of the 
most enthusiastic supporters of the 
football team, and the man perched 
atop the press box with his camera 
at each game will be one of the spea- 
kers and will probably describe the 
appearance of the team through a

One of the mysteries which will prob- 
ablv never be explained to college stu- 
dents is what makes one course worth 
more than another in terms of gradua- 
tion credits. 

There are certain laboratory courses 
Which require thai considerable time 
er and above the scheduled number 
f hours be spent on them. Yet these 
curses are described in the college cat- 
alogue something like, "two class hours 
one three hour laboratory period, or 
•two 2 hour laboratory periods," or "one 
class hour, two 2 hour laboratory peri- 
oda." And they are usually worth two 
or three credits. 

Now along comes a new course, 
taught once a week for a period of about 
two and a half hours. This is strictly 
a lecture and reading course. Fortunate- 
ly it is taught by a man who knows his 
business. But it does not compare m 
difficulty or time consumed with any 
of the courses described above. 

It is recognized that the present sys- 
tem of evaluating the worth of a course 
is very poor and that some of the most 
difficult courses are worth as little as 
some of our most outrageus "guts." 
I would be very difficult to reassign 
values to our present courses. If this 
were done some of our departmental 
m ijors might disappear. 

However, it might be a good idea for 
,-. proper authorities to keep this sort 
of thing from becoming too prevalent in 
the future. 

We have now reached that time of 
year which, fittingly enough, is known 
as Amherst Weekend. It has been so 
designated in the past, because it has 
be n the one weekend in the year when 
Amherst has been so assured of a grid- 
iron victory that it has been possible for 
them to claim it as their weekend 
months ahead. If State were to rise up, 
east off the chains of oppression, and 
trample Lord Jeff in the dust, a deli- 
cate question of etiquette might arise 
as to whether the name should be 
changed, for that year at least, to 
Massachusetts State Weekend. It would 
please us greatly to have our gridiron 
warriors make a test case of it this 
year, and they're just the boys who 
could do it. 

Among the many traditions of Am- 
herst College is their well known song, 
the chorus of which goes something 
like this: 

'Oh, Amherst, brave Amherst, was 
a name known to fame in days of 
'And his sons are uproarious, as we 
pick them up off of the bar-room 
Tomorrow night, for the first time 
in history; the Peanut Gallery will step 
off its usual post in this paper, and 
mount the stage of Bowker Auditorium 
in the form of Campus Varieties. The 
beautiful metaphors and similes, seen 
here so often, will become songs in the 
voices of golden-voiced singers: the al- 
literation and onomatopoeia (Websters 
New Big Fat Dictionary page 1703) will 
become the subtle rythm of hot swing; 
and the hilarious humor will become 
even more hilarious when it is brought 
right into your laps. If you are one of 
the two or three who don't like the col- 
umn you won't notice any similarity 
so come anyhow. Don Campbell is going 
to give an exhibition on how to use the 
stiff -arm on a clarinet, and Tom Kelly 
has promised to do a tight rope act. The 
rope won't be the only thing that is 

On Monday night Chris Gianarakos 
will make his debut in the professional 
boxing ring in Holyoke, fighting a four 
round preliminary under the name of 
Jackson. We sincerely hope that next 
Tuesday we do not find Chris under the 
name of Jackson, which in turn is chip- 
ped out of a marble stone. Art Koulias, 
Chris's manager, tells us that he has 
tutored his pupils for days in psychology 
and Art believes that this will equip 
the murderous Greek for any eventu- 
ality. We, ourselves, would prefer a 
pair of brass nuckles, a baseball bat, 
and a fast automobile just in case we 
didn't feel like fighting anyhow. 

A lew weeks ago we promised our 
noble public, which has risen to twelve 
in number, a column on the alto sax. 
Well, that's a big order, and we hope 
we haven't bitten off more than we can 
chew. In order not to be impolite by talk- 
ing wi.h a mouth full, we'll talk only 
abo~t ihose men who impress us most 
Benny Carter is a man who is jazz 
in himself. Equally good on trumpet, 
B nny hits the advantage of years of 
perience. He is one of the few bena- 
fide international masters of his instru- 
ment. The outstanding feature of Car- 
ter's playing is the discipline which he 
impresses on his ideas. We would call 
Benny Carter the most organied alto 

The dope on Pete Brown is quite dif- 
ferent. Pete is highly imaginative and 
impulsive. He is nervous to the point of 
violence. In a word, Pete is jump. We 
would call Pete Brown the most excit- 
ing alto saxist. 

Johnnie Hodges isn't jazz or Duke 
Ellington or anything else, but just 
Johnnie Hodges. He's enthusiastic and 
optimistic. He's bubbling over and he's 
bouncing all the way home. We would 
■all Johnnie Hodges the most distinc- 
tive alto saxist.

"Scholarship, alone, in times like 
these, is not enough. There must be 
scholarship, yes ; and it must be utilized 
in every way possible to further the 
cause for which we are fighting. But 
something more is necessary — a collec- 
tive something hard to define, yet easy 
to understand: loyalty, courage, perse- 
verance, sacrifice, devotion, faith and 
singleness of purpose — in war or peace 
these human qualities are an ever pres- 
ent requisite of national greatness. But 
in time of war they acquire a new and 
deeper significance, for through them 
a nation's war effort can be focused. 
Scholarship today, without these values 
to motivate it, is certain to be inade- 
quate; scholarship, driven by the power 
these values generate, will help us as 
a nation to attain the victory we must 
win." President W. C. Coffey of the 
University of Minnesota calls attention

Stockbridge Rallies In Last Minutes 
To Win Over Mt. Hermon, 10-0 


The Stockbridge Aggies rallied late 
in the final chapter last Saturday 
making a touchdown and a field goal, 
to down a powerful Mt. Hermon 
eleven 10-0, with just four minutes 
of play left. 

Stockbridge scored when Joe Bak 
intercepted a Hermon aerial on the 
fifty yard stripe. On the next play, 
he tossed a long pass to Sil Adamo, 
who grabbed the ball from the arms 
of several Mt. Hermon defenders and 
twisted his way to the one. "Red" 
Stevens bull-dozed his way over for 
six points. Paul Marsoubian's educa- 
ted toe raised the score to 7-0. In the 
closing minutes of the contest, Saari 
recovered a fumble for Stix-kbridge 
on the opponent's 35 yard line. Adamo 
tarried to the ten, where Marsoubian 
entered the game, this time to split 
the uprights with a field goal. Stock- 
bridge was ahead 10-0. 

Mt. Hermon threatened constantly 
with their tricky offensive ami fast- 
charging line. Once they drove to the 
one yard line only to lose the ball on 
a fumble. Equally affective, however, 
was the Aggies' front line wall. They 
did a good job of dropping the Her- 
mon ball carriers before they had a 
chance to reel off long gains. 

Characteristic of the fight in the 
Stockbridge lads was Captain "Red" 
Stevens, who, although knocked un- 
concious three times, played all but 
a few minutes of the game. 

Sil Adamo played his last game. 
He is leaving school, but hopes to 
return next year, if dairy industry de- 
ferments are being granted then, as 
seems most likely. Basic needs of 
this industry are just beginning to 
be recognized. In the short time he 
ihas been here he has proved himself 
[an outstanding player.

War Information Is Exhibited In 
Goodell Library On Many Subjects 

War Makes Effect 
On College Store 

The fact that prices have gone up 

in the outside world is reflected in 
the College Store. This fact was of- 
Aciallj announced recently by Mr. 

DoaaM Haw ley, manager of the stoiv. 

Food sold at the lunch countn, 
randy .and cigarettes are subject to 
;i list' in price, but SUCh articles as 
soap have a definite ceiling. There- 
lore, they cannot be sold for more 
than their price last March, 

The book problem is a major one 
at the College Store. As only 2<»' , 

of the books ordered can be returned, 

books are ordered carefully, and al- 
lowances are made for sivond-hand 
books already OB campus. Since the 
store is operated on a non-profit ba- 
sis the price of a book is complicated. 
It is a result of the listed price of 
the book, minus the publishers dis- 
count S/hich in a large majority of 
ease about 2I>', plus the cost 

of the book's transportation, plus 5c 
to help cover the overhead at the 
College Store. 

The amount of business in one year 
i l about tht same as that for any 
Other year. The College Store, owned 
by the Trustees of Massachusetts 
State College, is patronized almost 
exclusively by State students. 

Sometime when you're waiting for 
the girl friend to come and help you 
study, go over and take a look at the 
library's collection of war Information. 
On the tables at the left and at the 
right of the door as y.ui enter Goodel] 
Library, you'll find all kinds of ma- 
terial concerning the war. There are 
pamphlets that tell what sort of fel- 
lows our allies are, how they live and 
and where. 

Here and there are small newspa- 
pers each of which is devoted to news 
from or about BOOM Nazi occupied 
country such as < Czechoslovakia, Bel- 
gium, Poland, or Norway. Read some 
of these and learn about the sufferings 
and yet undaunted spirit of the people 
who have felt the impact of the 
enemies' fist. 

If Mr. Adams' lively talk at convo- 
cation awakened your interest in Aus- 
tralia, you will find several beautifully 
illustrated booklets jammed from cov- 
er tt> COVer with fascinating literature 
concerning the great continent. Pic- 
tures of her war effort ami her fa- 
mous Aussies in action are numerous.

You can stay here for hours and 
read about labor m wartime, educa-

On display in Memorial Hall this

revealing the suffering of the poor 
A great humanitarian, Mrs. Kollwitz 
has dedicated her life to an effort to 
improve the conditions of the working 
class, using art as her means of ex- 

more delivered a dramatic lecture per- 
taining to the reaction of the English 
during the "blitz" period of 1939 and 
1940. Explaining that he was one of 
a commission of three, a priest, a 
minister, and a rabbi, delegated to 
travel to Britain for the purpose of

Born in Germany about seventy-five ■*""?*"« ' ,. ' ... . . ,. ftlnrflll 

years ago, Mrs. Kollwitz inherited 
some of her reform ideas from her 
father who was a teacher and a radi- 
cal. Her bent towards the poor was 
further intensified by her marriage to 
Dr. Kollwitz who devoted his entire 
profession to the care of the poor. 
During the first World War two of 
her sons entered the service, one of 
whom was killed. At this time, Mrs. 
Kollwitz, having had previous training 
in art, began to make drawings ex- 
pressing the wretchedness and depri- 
vation of the poor— the tragi* suffer- 
ing caused by the war. 

Since her work was not popular 
with the rulers of Germany she was 
hanished, but returned again after 
the War. In the meantime her pic- 
tures had won favorable comment 
from critics abroad, particularly in 
France and England, and had been I 
widely circulated. The reform ele- 
ments in Germany then supported her, 
and she won great recognition in her 
own country. When Hitler came into 
power she was banished again — to 
Switzerland where she now lives. 
Mrs. Kollwitz's work is intensely re- 

trigued the audience with his colorful 
anecdotes. And anyone of the large 
gathering can testify as to the emo- 
tional grip with which the Rabbi held 
them with his powers of oratory. 

He mentioned interviews which the 
commission had with Prime Minister 
Winston Churchill and Lord Bevin. 
During his talk, Lazaron quoted from 
David Morton's "Letter to Youth," and 
it was interesting to note that Mr. 
Morton was himself present at the 
lector*. Rabbi Lazaron definitely stat- 
ed that he was primarily concerned 
with conveying the color of the emo- 
tional reaction of the Knglish. Indeed, 
it was a solemn and thinking group 
which left the Chapel auditorium that

one of the finest is her Self-Portrait,

likeness of her. This portrait well re- 
veals her powerful strength and de- 
termination. Other human moving pic- 
tures are "Suicide," "The End," and 
"Oppressed." all expressing wretched- 
ness and stark tragedy, which combine 
to form a depressing, yet fascinating 

For the past twenty years, Mrs. 
Kollwitz's work has circulated in Am- 
erica. The present collection was se- 
lected by Howard Devree of the New

al"t£ Of her works on exhibit here, bor, it is st.ll debatable for women s 

'education, in opinion of Roswell G. 
Ham, president of Mount Holyoke 

An immediate and obvious comment, 
he feels, would be that since women 
of college age are not concerned with 
the draft, there should be no necessity 
for them to advance the year of their 

"But," he continues, "that answer 
takes for granted certain premises 
which may not be altogether sound: 
First, that this is a man's war; and, 
second, that college women should 
continue in the leisurely process of 
liberal education, against the day when 
the world will need their philosophy 
and art. 

"Such a view would assume that 
the men's way of acceleration is only 
concerned with the attainment of skills 
and sciences to win the war, and that 
for the duration they are dedicated 
to an illiberal and unbalanced scheme 
of education. Of this danger both 
the men's and women's colleges are 
well aware, but the latter are equally 
aware by this time that total war 
takes no account of sexes. 

"The second argument, that women 
constitute a reserve against the future 
is more tenable. 

"We are posed with two problems: 
One, whether the program of acceler- 
ation is worth while for the women's 
colleges during the period of the war, 
and another, whether it may not be a 
permanent and justifiable outgrowth 
of the present emergency. For the 
first I have very little to add to the

acceleration carries with it a whole 
train of headaches for the adminis-

This year's delegates to the annual 
convention of the Associated Collegi- 
ate Press, David Bush '44 managing 
editor of the Collegian, and Wendell 
Brown '415 business manager, will 
leave Tuesday, November 3rd for Chi- 
cago for a three day program opening 
on Thursday, November 5th at the 
Knickerbocker Hotel. 

This convention is an annual affair, 
bringing together the best men from 
various governmental agencies, busi- 
ness firms, newspapers, and colleges 
to get together for inside information 
on facts important to every college 
newspaper, magazine and yearbook. 
This year's gathering takes on new 
significance as it will probably be the 
last of its kind for the duration. New 
problems, coming to the fore under 
present wartime conditions, will be 
among the main topics of discussion. 

Officially the convention lists its 
purposes as; first, to learn what the 
government expects of school publi- 
cations in winning the war, and sec- 
ond, to learn the answers to many 
vital questions brought about by con- 
ditions facing college publications to- 
day. Unofficially it gives delegates a 
new slant on life and incidentally a 
worthwhile time. 

Doctor Gerhard Schacher of London, 
eminent central European staff cor- 
respondent, will be one of several in- 
ternationally known speakers present. 
The program as a whole includes 
speakers and discussions, designed to 
answer the problems of business man- 
agers, editors, and advisors in put- 
ting out an up-to-the-times campus

scientific interest. 

the war. The arguments against 
1 compressing a four-year college into 
three years have to do with the matur 
ity of college students and with the 
standards of their education. 

"As to the matter of maturity, 
there is certainly a point of diminish- 
ing returns, but it would hardly seem 
to be determined by a three as op- 
posed to a four-year course. If only 
it were a matter of a specified amount 
of knowledge to be accumulated, 
doubtless we could pack the four 
years into two. 

"These arguments concern both men 
and women. The men's colleges are 
committed for the duration; if this 
is to be a long war, the women in 
creasingly will have to bear their 
part and, unless all predictions are 
awry, they will not be contented to 
lag behind. 

"It will serve us well to have open 
minds. For this might also be haz- 
arded, that, when the American public 
discovers that there is nothing sac- 
rosanct about four years it will not 
easily revert to abandoned ways."

Ah— the autumn! The good ol' au- 
tumn, with its falling leaves and 
crisp air the Ollly time of year a fel- 
low can walk down the street with a 
girl and a blanket and people think 
they're going to ;i football game. 

And speaking of football games. 
Mate is playing this Saturday, aren't 
they? Ah Amherst week-end! Good 
ol' Amherst Week-End, with its fall- 
ing leaves and falling rain and downed 
spirits and vice versa. Amherst Week- 
End— with its pretty ghouls (usually 
a bit damp about the edges) and the 
sultry-eyed imports with that "Don't 
y»u wish you knew?" look and sup- 
per date- and vie parties and — oh, 
ve> the reason for the whole blow- 
out the football game. 

And what about the game? Well, 
your guess is as good as ours. We 
won't bother going into details, for 

[every State fan is probably well ac- 
quainted with the ins and outs of 

I the Sabiina strategy. But the setup 
is roughly this: two teams with ap- 
proximately the same style of play, 
namely, a ground power attack, will 

I be Opposing each other. Amherst gOM 
into the fray undefeated and, as in 

1 most years, the favorite. State goes 
into battle with one win and the con- 

1 viction that they can and will beat 
the Jefftnen. Amherst will be relying 
on their belief that State is a two 

I man team— namely Campbell and Bor- 

Ideau and to match them they have 
Haaafl and Carey. State, of course, has 
psychological factor in its favor in 
that it will be out for blood — that 
nelps. So there you have it as far as 
re « are to take it. For details, read 
the story by Hank Zahner. 

And in closing may we warn you 
to procure rubber boots now. Have a 
food week-end and don't trip over 
Unv bottles!

Engineers Trounced As State Wins 
18-6 For First Time This Season 

Coach Hargersheimer*i Huskies 
■broke into the win column last Satur- 
Iday for the first time when they wal- 
loped the fighting Tech Kngineers, 1K- 
■0. The Baystater's three touchdowns 
were made by Don Campbell, Fran 
[eoogh, and fighting Kddy Bordeau. 
forgis contributed the lone Tech tally- 
in the second quarter, throwing a 
challenge into the teeth of the Bay- 

State retaliated by driving and 
passing down the grid. The offensive 
started from the Tech 37. Ward Shan- 
non reeled off nine yards to the 28, 
ind Fedeli clinched a first down. Then 
Stead snared a pass from Shannon, 
aking the oval to the 16. Shannon's 
r iext pass was intercepted, but an 
interference penalty put the ball on 
Tech's two. Then Shannon tossed to 
ieough to tie up the ballgame. 

State's second touchdown was the 

jivork of the Springfield boys, Keough 

ind Campbell. Keough recovered a 

fumbled center on his 43, swept 

around left end, and lateraled to 

ampbell who dodged the rest of the 
ivay to the goal line. 

State salted the contest away in 
the- Rnal minutes of the fourth period 
irhcn Shannon started a touchdown 
Irive by lugging the ball to the 84- 
fard stripe after a partially blocked 
kick. Campbell made it a first down 
In the Worcester 18, and then passed 
jo Shannon for a short gain. Carry-

State senior makes his professional 
pugilistic debut when he meets Kay

Long Island, New York. The bout is 
scheduled to take place In Hcdyoke's 

Valley Arena on November 2 at B 
p. in. Managing Chris is Art Koolias, 

former golden glove champ, while 
Nick Caragainas handles the training. 

For the P ast few weeks the training 
has progress ad steadily in the Curry 
Mick's Gym. Gianarakos has hardened 
down to 17.! pounds of rippling muscle 
and sinew by virtue of sparring bouts 
with such huskies as Bob Klein. Matty 
Ryan, Sam Peskin, and Kd Larkin.

Drop Third Decision 

The State harriers lost another 
heartbreeker 87-28 to the Worcester 

Tech hill-and-dalers on the local course 
last Saturday. Freshman Alec Camp- 
bell, after taking second places in 
both the MIT and Amherst meets, 
seemed to be jinxed again as he was

The Maroon and White will face the

strength of I largcshionier's Huskies,

Freshman Sports Now

iow on an intramura (basis. Those

Steps of the physical education build- 
ing instead of Stockbridge Hall. 

The band will meet in front of QTV 

•and will begin the march down fra- 

!yrnity row at 7:30. Members of the 

football team will be present as well 

§s members of the coaching staff. 


Tomorrow evening the Newman 
Club will sponsor an informal 
dance at the Drill Hall immediate- 
ly following the rally. Admission

<y Caldwell, military analyst and 
internationally known aviation expert, 
spoke <»n the part played by air power 
in this war at Convocation this 
morning. Mr. Caldwell pointed out 
that enthusiasts who yearn for victory 
by sir pawer alone are ignoring the 
fact that air power is only one leg of 
a three-legged stool, the other two 

lens being land and sea power. 

Mr. Cal d we ll pointed out that war is 
no certain science, but rather I matter 
of trial and error. In touching on the 
war in Africa, the Atlantic and Pacific 
supply lines, and the present battle 
of the islands, he pointed out that 
Germany, Britain, and the United 
States have all made blunders, but 
that those Hitler made in the building 
of his air forte are no doubt the 
biggest. Our own blunders have prob- 
ably been forced on us by geographi- 
cal necessity and the bottleneck of 
ship transport, but we have violate! 
all military teaching in trying to be 
strong everywhere at once. 

In World War I, Mr. Caldwell 
served as an K. A. F. pilot on the 
Western Front, and until a few years 
ago when he became internationally 
prominent for his writing and broad- 

casting on aviation subjects, he had 
been a commercial and test pilot for 
leading American airlini 

. Caldwell came to the United 

e.s from Nova Scotia when he 
very young, and ha- now become an 
American citizen. When sent to Eng- 
land in 1916 for training in the R. A, 
F., he served for a time with the 

Home Defense. In r. » 1 7 . he was sent 
to Prance as a pilot attached to a 
night bombing squadron. When the 

army of occupation was sent to the 
continent, Mr. Caldwell was stationed 
,it Cologne. 

On his return to the United Stal 
Mr. Caldwell tested night mail plane 
and torpedo-carrying planes for the 
United States Navy. In I'.t'^T, he flew 
Pan American's first mail plane on 
the first (light of what has now be- 
come the world's largest air transport 
system. For the past ten years he 
has given most of his time to writing 
and broadcasting, being featured on 
Willi's program, "This War". He Is 
also associate editor of Aero Digest. 

Government Conference

The problem of manpower in a 
country at war will be the subject of 
the seventh annual conference on cur- 
rent governmental problems to be held 
at Massachusetts State College on 
Nvember 20, it was announcer! by 
President Hugh P. Baker. 

A preliminary program released 
today by Dr. Charles J. Rohr, chair-

State Students Have Opportunity To 
Volunteer For ARP Work On Campus 

The following important announce-, 
ments concerning the college A. R. P. 
were recently made by I'rof. Harold 
M. Gore, chairman of the college A. 
Ii. P. committee: 

In order that the college A. P.P. 
function as efficiently as possible in 
protecting lives and property during 
the war period, more volunteers are 
needed to help with the work involved.; 
Approximately 380 students have, 
signed up and are willing to help. 
Although this response seems good,; 

actually it is not what it should 
be. Most of the volunteers are fre -h- 
men who signified their willingness 
to help in questional res which they 
filled out some time ago. 

In general an attempt is being made 
to make the study as realistic as 
possible so that those who complete 
the course will be able to be of real 
help in time of need. The privilege of

Three years ago a group of spirited 
nln iSfth foresight rarely four. I in |tu- 
dent leaders, conceived the idea of a Stu- 
t 1 Leader Day. It was their idea that 
I J " h " cfav outstanding students from 
hU schools throughout the common- 
wealth wore to be invited to the College 
at the Spenae of the Student Leader 
'lav Committee for the purpose of be 
coming acquainted with what the Co - 
ege had to offer. The money for th 
project was to come from a show to be 
held in the fall. 

Things did not turn out quite as well 
as the exponents of the idea would have 
Hked The idea of inviting students to 
this campus did not pan out at all well 
There were dissenting ideas as to what 
constituted an outstanding student 
Some wanted athletes, some wanted 
scholars, and some wanted musicians. 
Partly because of this and partly be- 
cause of a rather complex unexpected 
development, the idea of a student lead- 
er dav had to be abandoned. 

There was one bright spot in 

the football team last Saturday, certain 
hhitfs have become more obvious, hirst 
is the realization that no matter how 
good a team is, it cannot stand up a- 
inat a team three times Its size In 
numbers. Th • second observation is a ■ 
e0 ] olary of the first: thai football play- 
cannot be had unless there is ma- 
| ., ial from which to get them. 1 he third 
. , ., comes from the second: 

that in this modern age o! athletics, you 
annol get mat siial unless you go after 
it The fourth gem of wisdom is related 
to the tided: y<»u cannot go after mater- 
ial unless you have something to offer. 
This all relates to a scholarship fund 
up for the benefit of athletes. This 
not mean that scholastic standards 
.,. ( . 1 to be lowered. There are plenty Ol 
good scholars who are also good athlete ... 
ind who have to work at least part o. 
heir way through college. 

This is where such a fund would com- 
in II would make it easier for athletes 
to" get scholarships which they need to 
keep them in school and at the same 
time give them the time necessary for 
practice. Of course there are those who 
maintain that a good student can al- 
ways get help through regular scholar- 
ship funds. However, how much chance 
iocs a man participating in athletics 
have against a man who spends his time 

"grinding?" , , 

This year Massachusetts State lost 
one of the most promising basketball 
players ever to enroll here to Rhode Is- 
land State. This man was the brother 
of an alumnus (Class of 1940) who had 
a very outstanding record hsre. 1 he 
prospective freshman had an excellent 
high school record. He was accepted 
here without any difficulty. But he 
withdrew his application when Rhode 
Island made him an attractive offer. To 
keep people like him in our fold, it might 
not be a bad idea to have a little scholar- 
ship fund available for just such an 

It is up to the student body to keep 
student funds for student purposes and 
certainly athletics can be considered as 
such Just so long as there are loose 
funds available, there will be people who 
will eve them longingly. While it is true 
that there is more than one way ot 
spending student funds usefully, it is 
certainly proper to consider that such 
funds be used for improving a situation 
on campus before they be considered 
for off campus use.

•t -, and trophies from Amherst College 
property. It is only fair to say that some 
State property was previously removed 
by Amherst men on their return to 
their campus and that the petty pilfer- 
ing was indulged in by way of retalia- 
tion. These actions are pardonable be- 
cauae the property always gets back 
to its owners. Howsver, acts of 
vandalism, such as destruction of 
oroperty and painting of property which 
took place cannot be pardoned It has 
given us a black mark to live down. 

There is much to be said in favor of 
the chaps who took it upon themselves 
to avenge the honor of the school. Their 
spirit was commendable even if all their 
actions were not. The school can stand 
a little of the same spirit more often 
is long as it does not turn itself to real- 
ly destructive acts. Such things as 
tearing down goal posts cost money but 
they are not too serious.

In the sordid (it has a bar) atmos-

As a result of the actions of certain 
upperclassmen last Friday evening and 
early Saturday morning .there are a 
number of men, particularly freshmen, 
going around campus muttering curses 
at the upperclassmen in question. 

It all goes back to the question of the 
\mherst invasion of the State campus 
Friday evening. One group of Amherst 
men marched on Stockbridge Hall with 
the apparent intention of breaking up 
the show in progress there. Another 
much smaller group marched on Alumni 
Field with the intention of tearing down 

ters. But they can be beaten if the or 
ganization and planning of their op- 
ponents is superior. Remember, plan- 
ning rather than rash action wins such

whole Dicture It was the annual fall purp ose. The second group got one goal 
show Campus Varieties. From the be- | post . i n connection with the success of 
Tinning, this show made a tremendous 
hit with the student body. Last year, 
despite the fact that the Senate knew 
that there could be no Student Leader 
Dav as such, it recognized the value ot 
the show as a source of money and au- 
thorized the continuation of Campus Va- 
rieties. Last year the money made on 
the show was placed in a general fund 
marked for some worthy, future use. 
This year the situation is somewhat 
th<* same. At present there are two ma- 
j r possibilities for the disposal of the 
J oney raised at Campus Varieties. One 
is to give the proceeds to the Campus 
Community Chest. The other is to put 
the money into War Bonds and use the 
money for scholarships when the bonds 
• . ature. 

There is no question of the worth of 

e Community Chest. The money will 

doubtless be put to good use. The Chest 

therefore deserves the support of the 

student body. 

However, then- is much to be said in 
favor of a scholarship fund, especially 
athletic scholarship fund, which is 
raised by the student body 

the second group, it is proper to mention 
that there are grounds for criticism of 
individuals who were in a position to 
expect this sort of thing and to prepare 
for it Certainly after the mid-week 
oitie on Pratt Field, people who have 
he m around for a while should have 
expected trouble on the eve before the 

game. . _ ,, 

As soon as word of the loss ot the 
goal posts j;ot around, an angry crew 
of about 150 State and Stockbridge stu- 
dents gathered near QTV for the appar- 
ent purpose of avenging the loss. 

Here it should be mentioned that the 
Amherst raid had all the earmarks of 
a carefully planned affair. The boys at 
the oth r end of town were expecting 
the rash action which followed. Our 
men, outnumbered considerably, rush- 
ed down town. They were met by the 
Amherst men. 

The fist fights which followed don t 
count. The bruises will heal. The fact 

This year's Amherst weekend saw a 
number of episodes which are worthy of 
note. An unknown group of Statesmen 
or someone trying to appear as such, 
deciding that Amherst College stood 
out like a sore thumb not only to them- 
selves but possibly to enemy airmen, 
proceeded to camoflouge a number of

We also thought it extremely sport- 
ing of the Willies to return the trou- 
sers, and so forth, of certain unfortunate 
men of State during halves of the

Chris Gianarachos made his debut in 
the professional boxing ring on Monday 
night, under the name of Jackson. Evi- 
dently the promoters thought that Gia- 
narachos and J acks o n were two people 
so they sent a 220 pound collussus, 
hereafter to be known as "That Bum", 
into the ring against our Mass. State 
Mauler. The klang of the bell seemed 
to have a remarkable soothing effect 
on "That Bum", because he became 

the impression that upperclassmen were 
full of spirits, especially during Amherst 
weekend). Why not Lord Jeff breeches 
cast upon the field between the halves 
instead of Aggie dungarees? This how- 
ever was their only complaint. Passed 
as a goodly institution: Amherst week- 
end by the Freshwomen. 

Upperclass weekend notes: A grat- 
ifying downpour of good old ultra-violet 
rays instead of a saturating solution 
of rain — the extra added attraction 
of a junior birdman on a bender — im- 
norts looking their sharpest instead of 
dragging themselves forlornly through 
mud in high heels — and so past is an- 
other Amherst weekend — only Hol- 
voke's hills could stand the strain.

State Band Parades On Pratt 

After but Saturday, the football has a new theme son*?— "What 
can we say, after wCvo said we're 
sorry'.'" We dldat mean that as an 
insinuation, for seriously, no 0B« ean 
say the hoys ,ii,in't try. What hap- 
pened was just one of thOM tbingl 
and is, perhaps, batter left unsaid. We 
would, however, like to aim a hlow in 
a certain direction this week in hopes 
that it will have some effect 

It seems there is a movement un- 
dfiwav to have a share of the pro- 
ceeds of the "Campus Varieties" show 
donated to the Community Cheat 
drive bete <>n campus. Now, the Chest 
is a worthy cause and all that sort of 
thins inasmuch as it donates to the 
Hp,| Cross, U. 8. O. Army and Navy 
Relief Fund and so on into the night. 
But we were laboring under the 
delusion that a "drive" is something 
that garners its proceeds from the 
students as individuals and not from 
student activities such as the "Varie- 

And so we come to our pergonal 
viewpoint of the matter. If money is 
going to be donated to any cause about 
campus, why not apply that money 
where it will bring immediate, tang- 
ible results? And by tangible results 
we do mean winning athletic teams. 
But winning teams of necessity need 
good athletes and good athletes go 
where, to put bluntly, they can get 
the best price, be it in outright remun- 
eration or, as is more often the case, 
in athletic scholarships. This may 
seem a complete reversal of philoso- 
phy on our part after the panning 
we gave subsidation in a previous 
column. But there, we were picturing 
things as we would like to see them, 
not as they actually are. The point is, 
fire must sometimes be fought with 
fire and in money matters, we hold 
to the old proverb, "Charity begins 

at home."

Jeffmen Annex Town Title For 
Eighth Consecutive Year 43-0 

The Clarkson Kngineers invade the 
.Massachusetts Slate grid for their 

first tilt with the I'.ay.-tater'.s next 

Saturday. The Engineer*! are the pro- 
tegees af coaeh P. G. Dwyer, and had

New York. In four starts they have 
snivelled three defeats and netted one 

Don Campbell will be acting cap 

tain for the Maroon and White, al 
though he may not start the game bo- 
cauM of injuries received ••!' the bands 

of the Lord .JetTs. Eddy P.ourdcati will 
be absent from the initial eleven for 
the same reason. The State team is 
reassembling its shattered ranks, and 
is making every effort to he in tiptop 
shape when the invader strikes. 

In the Clarkson lineup the out- 

landing triple threat is l'ei ucleiszki, 

who boldi down the halfback berth. 
Coach Dwyer, e product A the famous 
fighting Irish Notre Dame, has 
stressed the powerful backflelde for 

which his Alma Mater is notorious. 

Although the Engineer's eleven has 

felt the universal purge of war and 

injuries, and have been the undcr- v 
.logs in three of their four starts, all 
signs point to a close, hard pit. bed 
battle when they encounter the Stab 
men for the first time. 

It is important from the stand- 
point of morale and college spirit 

that the Bayatater's make every effort 

to will this encounter, so that they 
can repair their egos, so rudely dam 
aged by the buys al the other end of 
town, alter the coming epic with 
Tuft* in the not too distant future. 

The Baystate eleven took a deci- 
sive 43-0 defeat from the Lord Jeffs 
,.n the Pratt field last Saturday, to 
lose for the eighth consecutive year 
the town title. From the opening 
kick-off the Amherst men took com- 
plete control of the situation, and be- 
fore the first quarter had closed, they 
were leading by a comfortable 1H-0 
margin. In the first part of the second 
half the Maroon and White set its 
teeth and put up a game battle. Near 
the end of the game they cracked 
again under the pressure for the 
purple cohorts seemed to score at will. 
Don Campbell turned in a stellar 
piece of work, but failed to turn the 
tide alone. State's blocking was con- 
spicuous by its absence, as time after 
time the Jordanmen left gaping holes 
in State's line, or broke thru to 
ground the carrier. State's strongest 
point, her aerial offensive, proved her 
undoing as three of her attempts were 
intercepted to cross the zero line in 
enemy hands. 

The nearest that the Baystaters 
came to reaching the pay dirt was at 
end of the first period when succes- 
sive charges by Ward Shannon and 
Campbell pushed the oval to the 

opponent's 86-yard stripe. The skill- 
ful kicking and commando blocking 
of the victors kept the pigskin in 
Maroon and White territory for the 
majority of the contest. 

Although the Amherst combine i 

admittedly e hardened, veteran eta 

it was evident that the State boys 
were not up to par. The stitf defence 

put up in the third quarter by Stat. 
proved that they could stand up a- 
gainst the foe. Coach Harg< rshiemer 
correctly attributed the Maroon and 
White's initial setback to "stage

We are anxiously awaiting the ap- 
proaching convocation when Pussy 
Brooks the one-eyed guy who butted 
the bull off the bridge, is to address us 
on "The Plight of the Brooklynite". The 
Dodgers seem to be seeking a new mana- 
ger, and none of the state institutions 
will release one of their mental deli- 
quents to take over the job. The justly 
indignant Flatbushers claim they have 
treated all the other screwballs they've 
had all right, and they do not see why 
such action should be taken. 

Since the Peanut Gallery has taken 
personal charge of this years Communi- 
ty Chest Campaign we are planning 
high pressure methods. We can no* 
announce that any co-ed making con- 
tribution to the Chest, regardless of 
amount, will receive a kiss from the 
author of this column. Lucky girls. 

Some time ago we proved that 
small band jazz is the best brand pro- 
duced. Now wc make the statement 
dogmatically with no reservations or 
qualifications and proceed to call your 
attention to a couple small groups. 

We are forced to regard Artie 
Shaw's Grammercy Five as nothing 
more than an experiment. It is true 
that featuring a harpsichord was a 
novelty, but like most novelties be- 
came tiresome. It is true that some of 
the tunes and arrangements found in 
the music of the quintet were superior 
to the regular run of commercial re- 
cords. But it is also true that the work 
of the Five would not have faded out 
of the jazz picture if it were art. It 
may be worth while to point out that 
the recordings of pop tunes such as 
1 Surrender Dear and Lover Come 
Back To Me done by Shaw's tremen- 
dous swing band of 1939 have outlived 
the flashy Grammercy work. 

The Goodman sextet, on the other 
hand, has turned out music that we 
shall never forget. If any of you have 
read Benny's book, "King of Swing", 
you will recall that the King men- 
tioned that he did his best work with 
small outfits. Well, Benny wasn't 
kidding. Do you remember the Good- 
man quartet and trio of the thirties. 
Do you know the Goodman sextet of 
one and two years ago? 

Speaking of the sextet, we would 
like to point out two of it's latest 
recordings. At the time of recording

Gianarakos, weighing in at 170, 
was under a handicap of forty- 
odd pound*, In the four round 
bout, however, his superior skill 
bloodied his oppoment's nose and 
gave him the victory. The Spring- 
field boy, because of his weight, 
absorbed a lot of punishment and, 
was noticeably less agile.

by Peg Stanton 
There used to an old jive-tune 
which really sent the Highland lad- 
dies of Scotland — "The Campbells 
Are Coming". But now it has shifted 
localities and is the theme-song of 
State football fans. Get hep to the 
swirling bagpipea, lads and lassies, 
for the clan is on its way, and in no 
uncertain manner, in the person of 
Don Campbell, to captain the Maroon 
eleven in next Saturday's game with 
Clarkson Tech. 

Don's athletic career began at Clas- High School in Springfield, where 
he was a stellar trackman and played 
football "on the side". He matriculat- 
ed at Dartmouth College, and was a 
member of the freshman team. It 
area ■ sad but true fact when Don 
transferred to M. S. C. last year, he 
could not play football because of the 
rule regarding transfer students par- 
ticipating in varsity sports. 

Bat man, when the year was up, 
how that boy got going! He has been 
by far the most outstanding player 
on the State team this season, being 
a triple-threat man with no trouble at 
all. Probably his most spectacular 
playing was done in the Rhode Island 
State game. 

While we're on the subject of Don's 
versatility, let us say that there is 
probably no need to point out that 
this quality is evident not only on the 
football field, but also in any jam 
session. You know this if you attended 
Campus Varieties October W — and of 
course you did! Don's super ability 
with musical instruments, particular- 
ly the clarinet and saxophone, has won 
him great renown.

I hem. Tufts, (lark and MIT. They 
were defeated recently by Springfield, 
however. The squad is strong in vet-

Stale, on the other hand, will he 
out to close their rather spotty season 
in style by winning, especially after 
the defeat by Amherst last week. 
There will be a few changes in the 
starting lineup. John Cianotti will 
probably get the nod at goal while 
Ed Podolak and Steve C/arnicki will 
hold down the fullback posts. Bans 
Kellogg and Don Walker are likely 
starters at half, Stebbins will be at 
center half, Stan Gi/.ienski will lie at

Historic Faculty-Coed 
Clash Due Saturday 

The all out battle between coeds and 
faculty is currently scheduled to be 
played off November 14, at 1:30. The 
trame now has all indications of turn- 
ing into a four period brawl with the 
learned doctors running wild. The fac- 
ulty, apparently versed in the finer 
points of soccer is prepared to run 
the coeds uh, ragged! The femmes, 
hardened by several seasons at the 
same are versed in a less ethical way. 
Such stellar players as Coach Kiel, 
Rev. Easton, Mathtermind Schoon- 
maker, Doc Ross, Ruth Stevenson will 
no doubt be picked off as the game 
gets under way. Spectators will be ex- 
pected to shell out a few dimes— as

bridge Hall the weekend of Dei em 
bar 4th and 5th, leaves but three 
operettas in the entire Gilbert and 
Sullivan series which haven't as yet 
appeared on campus. 

"Yeomen of the Guard" is one of 
the most pretentious of any in the 
entire group, the closest approxima- 
tion being "The Gondoliers" given in 
Stockbridge in the spring of '40. The 
story takes place in England, action 
being carried on in the vicinity of the 
Tower of London. Color is the key- 
note of the rented background of this 
urban center, which will be; a produc- 
tion of the famous D'Oly Carte set. 
Elaborate costumes stage the Elisa- 
bethan atmosphere, as the yeomen 
guards of the Towers appear in their 
rv<\, gold, and black beefeaters and 
and the women in highnecked coun- 
t ry gowns. 

The group of fifty singers, most of 
whom have worked together before, 
is about the same size as before. Hel- 
en Van Meter, singing a lead, will 
be general manager for the second 
year. Robert Gower '45 will have 
charge of the sinfonietta. 

As this will be the major event on 
campus before the Christmas holi- 
days, something novel may be intro- 
duced to make the occasion a big 
weekend. If permission can be se- 
cured there will be a banquet or a 
dance the last night of the perfor- 
mance for students and visitingalumni.

U has often been said that the Massa- 
chusetts public is grossly ignoran .of 
the facilities Massachusetts State (ol- 
lege has to offer. This was brought out 
quite clearly at the time the University 
Status and the Home Economics budd- 
ing hearings were being held at the 
State House. Here was a case where a 
lack of favorable puhlic sentiment de- 
feated a cause beneficial to the entire 


Football publicity is without a doubt 
the best way to build up the good will 
Of the public toward the college. This is 
well demonstrated in the case of the big 
Ten in which all schools have excellent 
scholastic reputations as well as excel- 
lent athletic reputations. As a result 
they don't have to beg their legislatures 
for new buildings. The public demands 
that they get what they want. 

Massachusetts State has a good schol- 
astic reputation. But who knows about 
it? Certanily not the general public. 
East of Worcester there is still the be- 
lief that M8C consists of a barn, a silo. 
and a hav field. This seems to be the 
case despite the fact that MSC gets 
since in newspapers comparable to any 
oth-r school except on the sports page. 
There is only one way to get good ath- 
letic teams. That is to go after them. 
And you can't go after players without 
something to offer them. Schools are in 
comoetition for good players. The only 
WBV Massachusetts State can hop < to 
huild up its teams is by competing for 
men with other colleges on even terms. 
Naturally any athletic fund such as 
was suggested last week would have to 
be open and above hoard. It would 'wive 
to be administered by competent au- 
thority. Recipients would be limited to 
ath! >tes but these 1 i< n would have to 
be Bcholastically eligible. 

We have recognized our scholars, the 
men who build our scholastic reputa- 
tion, with scholarships. Why not similar

contributions to the war 


Outstanding woman of the week: — 
our first award goes to that woman, 
who in the line of patriotic duty un- 
flinchingly received the affectionate dec- 
oration of a departing junior birdman 
amid the appreciative applause of the 
Draper gapers. Then, 
those whoso 

offort were not so conspicuous: the 
women of this campus who have done 
their bit for the Farmers of America, 
viz, stripping tobacco (polka time). 
They were not alone in their work, being 
aided by students from the New Jersey 
College for Women, henceforth to be 
known as the Joisey Strippers. Needless 
to say. being daughters of old Aggie, 
we can outstrip anyone in our own little 
globe. In our resume of the women in 
the war as concerns this campus, we 
feel that we must not overlook the 
WAVES from Hamp. who caused a mi- 
nor rippb in our college pond when they 
heroically escorted the boys from Kappa 
Sicm-i last weekend. And lastly let us 
mention those who have more than com- 
plied with Uncle Sam's L85 regulation 
for the conservation of material — the 
dim^nr^e girls.

We understand that the honored local 
, , ity Phi Zeta has gone national, 
and will now he known by the imposing 
title Of Kappa Alpha Theta. We wish 
to extend our congratulations to the 
new KAT house, but we sincerely hope 
that the girls will not take on any feline 
characteristics such as scratching faces, 
climbing telephone poles, or lapping up 
milk. We suggest that in the future all 
pledges he known as kittens, while any 
male seen frequenting the property will 
affectionately be called Tom. 

Despite the fact that Kappa Sigma 
boasts a number of excellent swimmers, 
it is rumored that a few of the boys, 
attempting to be rocked in the cradle 
of the deep, found themselves slapped 
by the Waves. 

The mid-presidential term elections 
showed Republicans making big gains 
in congressional and gubernatorial cam- 
paigns, and the town of Amherst going 
wet. Whether or not this shows conclu- 
sive trend is a matter of conjecture. 
Some say it means alcohol is coming in 
one place and alcoholics in another. 
What are you going to do in a case like 

In the debate over the changing the 
Christmas vacation, we might add that 
to make it run to January 3 will make 
no real difference in class attendance 
on New Years Day. There would be the 
same number of students present under 
either system. 

Clarkson Tech dug so deeply into the 
past for their touchdown on Saturday, 
that the smell of the moth-balls evi- 
dently put the Statesmen to sleep, and 
the ancient play worked. Luckily the 
boys awoke in time to do something 
about it, and State won the last home 
game many of us will see as undergrad- 
uates. We understand that a special 
bootleggar play, featuring Joe Masi, has 
b?en devised to beat Tufts. 

Some suspicion has been aroused that 
the money collected for the Community 
Chest is going into the fabulous pocket 
of the Peanut Gallery. We wish to allay 
such fears. Just because we associate 
with strange characters, such as Indians 
who receive phone calls from strange 
women at all hours of the night, and 
numerous other indescribable gnomes, 
does not mean that we, ourselves, are 
crooks. Therefore put your trust in our 
honesty and your money in our hands.

er Campbell, also! 

Well, it will be all over but the 
shouting this Saturday Bight when 
the Maroon and White shall have fin- 
ished another not-so-jrlorious football 
eason — none of which, as far as we 
an see, is the fault of either the 
players or the coaching staff; so here 
■ go again on the same old story 
f winning teams. 

Why have winning teams? Why not 
ust play for the sake of the sport it- 
elf? Well, this is why: because it's 
human nature to love a winner, it's 
uman nature to want to win and by 
winning, the morale of the winners 
is lifted. Perhaps we can better illus- 
rate our point by using an example, 
he high school we went to was a 
basketball mad school situated in a 
basketball mad town. Kids in our 
town used to start flipping the ball 
around almost as soon as they could 
lift it and through the Y.M.C.A. and 
local boys' organizations, the school 
had its own little farm system. Con- 
sequently, by the time a lad got to 
high school, he was already a fair 
player. Once he was on the team, the 
polishing process was continued by 
a coach who loved a winner almost 
as much as he loved the game itself. 
And winners were what he turned 
out! There were about 1O00 students 
in our school and at every game, 
just about 1000 students turned out 
and yelled themselves silly— (which 
no doubt accounts for us). When that 
team lost a game, which didn't happen 
very often, everyone felt like crying. 
That, my friends, is what we call 
morale. That's what made the school 
the best blankety-blank little school 
this side of the Mississippi! And that, 
my friends, is one the things that 
should make State one of the best 
little colleges, at least in New Eng-

Second Grid Victory Of Season 
For State As Clarkson Falls 13-9 

The Maroon and White eleven 
biased the coaMbaek trail last Sat- 
urday when they edged OOt Clarkson 
, 13 b, in the ftaal half of the 

tussle. Clarkson finished the first half 

with a '»-<> lead but the underdog 
statesmen, sparked by Ed Pedeli and 
Don Campbell, pat ap I Btaliagrad 

offensive in the second half and sent 
the invaders home defeated. 

The first Quarter was largely a 
kicking duel of the quick kick variety, 
with Clarkson cashing in on a safety 
as Campbell was nailed behind his 
goal line. 

A finely executed screen pass with 
Pryzybylowski, versatile freshman 
back of the Engineers, tossing to Mc- 
Cartney, who had the protection of 
a quartet of his teammates, enabled 
the invaders to tally in the second 
quarter. A place kick by Caruso reg- 
istered the extra point. 

Both sides were sparring for a 
touchdown in the start of the third 
stanza when Campbell broke loose for 
a 55 yard dash to the zero stripe. 
Near the end of the period Johnny 
Storozuk, scrappy State guard, re- 
covered a fumble in midfield. Out- 
standing was the slashing of Fedeli, 
aided by Salwak and Campbell, as 
State drove thru to the 2 yard mark- 
er before they lost the oval on downs. 

The final quarter started with 
Clarkson in possession of the ball on 
its own 30. The visitors apparently 
were not quelled yet as Hutton and 
Brown each picked up seven yards 
on successive thrusts. On the next 
play, however, Hutton e lected to pass

Tulane Tops Michigan 
In Six Man Football 

Tulane won the freshman six-man 
jfootball championship when they 
topped Michigan, 1-0, between the 
halves last Saturday on Alumni field. 
The winning point was scored when a 
Michigan back became snarled up be- 
Ihind his own zero line. 

Michigan kicked off to Tulane, who 
Iran it back to midfield. There snappy 
playing failed to gain ground against 
I the Michigan tackling. Finally Tu- 
lane kicked on fourth down and sent 
Ithe oval spinning over the safety s 
head behind the goal line, where it 
|\vas downed for the victory point. 

Robichaud was at the helm

The State combine storms Medford 
to battle over the pigskin with Tufts, 
ancient and honourable rival, in the 
climactic grid joust Of the season. 
With the comeback spirit and ■ hoi s 
shoe, stale might put the clinker on 
tough Jumbomen, but all signs point 

to stormy weather ami a hard fotl 
encounter with victory depending on 
B lot of little things. 

Although the Tufts eleven has felt 
the ax in "> out of 7 grid duels, won 
■ rice and tied once, the caliber of their 
game last Saturday against undefe at 

ad New Hampshire puts them on the 

tough customer list. They led tin- 
wildcats for the first period, but were 

lly nosed out, 6-18, Powerhouse 
Williams, ranked 17th in the nation. 
lealt Tufts its worst defeat, (5-17. The 
ledfordmetl bowed to Howdoin, (MM 
tarly in their opener; Bates edged 
them 9-6. The next week Hoston l' fol- 
lowed Hates' example and nosed them 
out, ()-(5. Tufts fought to a (5(5 draw 

with Northeastern. The only feather 

in their battered helmet is a 12-0 
liutout over Middlebury. 

The record points to steady im- 
provement in face of heartbreaking 
defeats. They will be out for blood 
when they ch'sh with their Western 
foes next Saturday. 

State's achievement on the grid 
ly parallels its rh al's. In i\ 

encounters the Hargymen have been 
trounced four times and come thru 
twice. They lost to Connecticut, Ver- 
mont, Rhode Island State in 
-ion. Finally they broke the jinx and 
topped Wone ter Tech, 18-6. The 

next week the stroll^ .lell'liu n sent 

them down again, but last Saturday 

rallied and ousted invading 
l 'lark, on Tech, 13-9. 

Dick Norton, Baystate guard, will 
captain his combine in Saturday's Anal 

tilt. He serves in place of (ill Saul in 
and John McDonough, the big ones 
that got away into the airforce. Stale 
will also lack lie .ei vices of (ieorge 
Pushee and Ed Hitchcock, casualties 
in the Clark -on bout, plus Warren 
Anderson, Bob Place and Hed War 
i)L>r, who were put out of commission 
earlier. In the ba.Ktield. Fedeli, Sal- 
wak, Campbell, and Masi will handle 
the oval, while the line will he but- 

reased by Stead, Yergeau, Storozuk, 
Regnier, Pushee, and Bordeau, 

The statistics favor the .luinbonien 
slightly, but this is an upset year in

to do its share of upsetting 

Harvard Booters Tied 
2-2 By Briggsmen 

RPI Soccer Team Next 
On State Victory List 

Fielding a revamped lineup, Harry 
Hrigg's charges tit'd a good Harvard 
soccer team Saturday by the score of 
2-2. Both teams displayed some good 
soccer and showed two different at- 
tacks, Harvard with its short quick 
passes and the State team with its 

long ones. 

Harvard took an early lead when 
Drake centered the ball across our 
goal-mouth and Dixon pushed it into 
the nets after 15 minutes of the first 
period. This was the first scoring op- 
portunity for Harvard and they capi- 
talized. The score remained in their 
favor until the third period. This 
time on a melee in front of the goal, 
little "Phil" Iampietro pushed in the 
equalizer. Before the fourth period 
was very old, "Chick" Hourdeau con- 
verted Donovan's corner kick to put 
"State" in the lead 2-1. Hut, with 
three minutes to go Drake, Harvard's 
left wing, sent the ball in and Mor- 
gan headed it past Ciannotti. The 
game ended even after two five minute 

Probably the most outstanding play- 
er on the field was Chick Bourdeau 
at right wing for the full eighty-eight 
minutes. Also, Leon Gizienski showed 
up very well in the center of the line. 
"Tootie" Stebbins at center-half was 
constantly breaking up offensive plays 
and with Ed Podolak formed a formid- 
able defense. 

For "Hawvard" Drake at left wing 
and Morgan at inside kept pushing 
our defense. 

Lineups: Giannotti, (J.; Czarnecki, 
LP; Podolak, KF; Kellogg, RH; Steb- 
bins, CH; Walker, LH; Bourdeau, BWj 
Gizienski L., HI; Gizienski S., CV;

tro, Allen. For Harvard: Allen, Clark, ! 
Aphthorp, Morgan, Kate. Line nien: 
Hlanchard, Kempner. Referee: Watt. 

Saturday, Larry Briggs takes his 
soccer team to Troy to engage the 
R.P.I, engineers. The State team will 
be seeking their second victory and 
seem to have a fair chance to bag 
a victory. Coach Schmeltzer hoasts a 
starting aggregation of 8 South Am- 
ericans ami eleven lettermen from 
last year. To date they have taken 
Hamilton and Williams by large 
scores; tied last year's New Kngland 
Champa, Springfield and Syracuse, and 
i hey eked a close one from Steven's 
lech, 2-1. 

State has had a victory over U- 
Conn and have succeeded in tieing 
two since then while losing four. And 
it looks like a second victory this

Teaching Positions 
Now Open To Seniors 

High school teaching staffs are be- 
gining to feel the inroads into their 
teaching staffs, according to Prof. 
Albert W. I'm vis, in charge of teach- 
er training at the state College. 

This, according to Dr. Purvis, is 
going to give many college students 
opportunities for practice teaching 

that otherwise would be difficult to 
g«t Although several requests for 
candidate have been made, no one 
as vet lias availed himself of this 
opportunity. It may be noted that 
the schools arc relaxing their educa- 
tional and professional requirements 
in order to obtain teachers, and it is 
likely that this relaxttion will con- 
tinue. This would make it possible 
for seniors to fill these vacancies, and 
to complete their college work during 
the summer sessions. 

A list oi all the senior students who 
are qualified, and who might be in- 
terested in. teaching is being prepared. 
All students who are interested, even 
if there is some doubt about the re- 
qoirements, should report at once to

The powerful Stockbridge gridsters 

succumbed to their first defeat of the 

season last Friday, as they a heart- 

I breaker to Wentworth Institute in 

| Boston 7 to 0. 

The teams were pretty closely 
matched and the game was a nip and 
tuck affair all the way through. But 
in the second period, Wentworth 
launched an aerial attack anil a 20 
yard Borge to Boucher pass put Went- 
worth out in front 6 to 0. Captain Cas- 
well kicked the placement for the ex- 
tra point, and the half ended with 
Wentworth leading 7 to 0. 

The Stockbridge team came back in 
the second half with renewed pep and 
power. Bak kicked off to begin the 
second half and the Wentworth man 
was downed after a 10 yard run back. 
Wentworth made a first down by pick- 
ing up eleven yards on two running 
plays. But their man was nailed on 
the line of scrimmage on the next two 
plays by Stevens and Crump respec- 
tively. Stevens and Tryon ran the ball 
deep into the opponent's territory by 
a series of running plays, and then 
Stockbridge lost the ball on downs. 
Again in the fourth quarter the 
Stockbridge men threatened after 
Tryon received the punt on the 50, 
and Stevens, Bak, and Tryon took the 
ball to the Wentworth one foot line 
and lost the ball on downs. Stock- 
' bridge failed in an attempted field 
goal from the :0 yard line. 

It should be noted that the touch- 
down scored by Wentworth in Fri- 
day's game, was the first touchdown 
that has been scored against the 
Sto ckb ridge eleven this season. So 
let's give the fellows a lot of credit 

where it is due and help them win 
next Friday when they meet our tra- 
ditional rivals at Deerfield. 

Professor Rollin H. Barrett was 
the guest of the coach and team at 
the game. 

Armistice Day Program 
Presented Yesterday 

Stockbridge convocation yesterday 
marked the first war-time observance 
of this significant day since the con- 
clusion of hostilities of World War I. 
and the fateful Dec. 7, 1941, of Pearl 
Harbor and World War II. A special 
memorial program was conducted in 
Bowker Auditorium at which Prof. 
Theodore C Caldwell of the history 
department spoke on the topic "Ar- 
mistice Day, Its True Meaning and 

Headed by the student council and 
World War veterans' sons, ring the 
memorial wreath, the school body 
marched to Memorial Hall where the 
wreath was placed beside the com- 
memorative tablet listing the hon- 
ored war dead of the college. Presi- 
dent Hugh P. Baker accepted the sym- 
bolic token and paid fitting tribute to 
all the sons of MSC of all wars, past 
and present. 

Poultry School Will 
Consider War Problems 

Most of Europe and many parts 
of Asia will look to the American 
poultry breeder for superior breeding 
stock to replenish their supplies after 
the war, according to Dr. Raymond 
T. Parhurst, head of the Massachu- 
setts State College department of 
poultry husbandry, in announcing 
objective of the 15th annual poultry 
breeder's school to be held here on 
Nocembei 12 and IS. 

The school, open to New England 
poultrymen, will stress ways of In- 
creasing production of poultry sup- 
plies for the American table during 
wartime and will look ahead to the 
problem of furnishing the world with 
suitable breeding stock to replace 
that lost during the present turmoil 
in Europe and Asia.

The faculty forum is one of the reg- 
ular monthly programs sponsored by 
the Christian Association. The October 
program featured Rev. W. B. Easton 
who spoke to more than seventy-five 
students on the subject of "Marriage 
in Wartime". 

It is expected that Grace Lockes 
Elliot will be here for the December 

following pledgee: Shirley Breitkopf, 

Charlotte Chaletzky. Betty Evelev, 

Ruth Felsteiner, Barbara Glagoraky, 
Gloria Graenberg, Marjorie Harris, 
Harriet Hcrbitz Natalie Lercr, Mad-

kin, Laura Resnick, Miriam Rubins, 
Barbara Schlafman, Sara Seltzer, Lil- 
lian Stroma, Ruth Wagner, and Bev- 
erly Wernick, and Pearl Wolozin '45. 
The success of this year's rushing 
is evidenced by the fact that all the 
houses approached the quota number 
on their pledge lists. Previous to 
closed date a round robin tea and four 
informal teas were held at the individ- 
ual houses. Rushing will be complete 
for the year with the period of infor- 
mal rushing in the spring.

ERC Enlistments 

Men from the junior and senior 
classes who intend to join the 
Enlisted Reserve Corps had better 
hurry, for there is only a week 
and a half left until December 1st 
when enlistments close. 

There are still openings in the 
army, navy, marine corps and air 
corps, and those of the upperclass- 
men who are interested should 
see Major Rice at the Drill Hall 
immediately. Positively no appli- 
cants for the Enlisted Reserve 
will be accepted from the two up- 
per classes after December 1. 

according to Dr. Charles F. Fraker, 
associate professor of modern lan- 
guages, who reported results of a 
survey of enrolment trends in modern 


Dr. Fraker pointed out that enrol- 
ment in French has dropped apprecia- 
bly since the fall of France but has 
been acempanied by a phenomenal in- 
crease in the study of first-year Span- 

ish. "Enrolment In German, however," 
he said, "has held rather steady dur- 
ing the past year although during 
the first World War a marked drop 
in enrolment in this language was 
common experience throughout the 

Explaining the drop in enrolment 
in French, Dr. Fraker said he found 
that this drop became marked after 
the fall of France. "The reaction," 
be said, "was presumably based some- 
what upon an emotional revulsion 
following the removal of France from 
aclive participation, or at least from 
willing participation, in the war." 

Turning to a review of the study 

of Spanish, Dr. Fraker pointed out 

that enro lment has doubled this year

College Limited To 
Three Formats For Year 

Following their regular meeting, the 
Senate announced that the number of 
formals to be held on campus this 
pear would be limited to three. These 
events are the Military Ball, already 
set for December Ik, the Winter Car- 
nival, and the Soph-Senior Hop. The 
first dance is the only first semester 
formal, and the other two dances in- 
augurate and end the second scme:.icr. 

Formals this year will be less elab- 
orate because of wartime conditions. 
The selection of orchestras will be 
limited because el transportation prob- 
lems. Projects to aid the war effort 
will be a part of every formal, this 
• ear stressing simplicity. 

This morning's convocation saw the 
opening of the annual ('ampus Com- 
munity Chest drive, under the co- 
chairmanship of Jean Brown and John 
Hicks. This year's goal has been set 
at $2600, one thousand more than 
last years amount. The budget, as 
approved by fraternity and sorority 
presidents and potential collectors 
is as follows: 

World Student Service Fund 40% 
United Service Organization .'«>', 
Army and Navy Relief lit', 

tamp Anderson •■' - 

Red Cross If* 

Fxpenses -' - 

The Red Cross, USO and Army and 
Navy Relief are well known to stu- 
dents of this and every other college. 
The work of each is essential to the 
physical welfare of the men at the 
front, as well as for their morale 
whether on the fighting line Off i" 
camps or training centers. 

The work of the World Student 
Service Fund is less familiar to most 
people. The object of this organization 
is to supply books and other educa- 
tional facilities to students who have 
been driven from their schools in he- 
seiged or conquered countries, as 
well as in the United States. Aid of 
this kind has already been extended 
to Chinese, Polish, French and stu- 
dents of other nationalities in their 
own lands, as well as to those who 
have fled to the U.S. or Great Britain. 
In addition, books have been sent 
to British prisoners in Cerniany, and 
these men now have the opportunity 
to take college courses while in enemy 
prison camps. The same privilege 
is extended to Cernian soldiers in 
Canada, and England, and should even 
be of more interest to Americans now 
that our own soldiers are bound to 
begin t<> trickle into German camps. 
The WSSSF, working upon the theo- 
ry that students throughout the world 
are one grea! community, raises its 
funds only from college campuses 
througout the nation. 

Camp Anderson is a local project 
a summer camp for underprivileged 
children of Amherst, attempting to 
give these unfortunates a chance 

omewhat more equal to that enjoyed 

by luckier boys and girls.

War Makes Public 
Of Value Of Trees, 

Dr. McKenzie Says 

Whether or not we believe that 
man's ancestors wore arboreal, trees 
have always performed a useful func- 
tion in human economy. From the 
earliest times they have served as 
sources of fuel, provided shelter and 
mean, of escape from sudden danger. 

With the. coming of war, trees have 
been found of unexpected value. They 
are one of the most important agents 
for camouflaging occupied areas, or 
strategic equipment, or the movement 
of people. Their very presence is and 
added protection against damage 
caused by machine gun fire from the 
air, from the explosion of bombs, from 
dropping shrapnel. Even their root 
system is effective in minimizing 
danger to water and sewer mains 
which might be caused by high ex- 

Dr. Malcolm A. McKenzie, research 
professor of botany at Massachusetts 
State College, ever since the outbreak 
of war has been studying the values 
of trees in wartime. Some of his con- 

clusions are a revelation to the aver : 
age man on the street who think- of 
B tree primarily as a thing of beauty 
>r a convenient shade producer rather 
than as an important ally. 

"Most self-evident use of trees in 
wartime," according to Dr. McKenzie, 
"is their value as camouflage. An towns and cities whose st? 
are bordered by widespreading shade 
trees, whose parks and avenue- are 
well wooded, have an immense ad- 
vantage over other congested areas 
in this country in the event of bomb- 
ing from the air." 

"Most camouflage" explains Dr. 
McKenzie, "is carried out not so 
much by completely hiding an object 
as by obscuring its outline, making 
it blend naturally with its surround- 
ings, destroying the straight lines 
which cry out to an enemy aviator 
that here lies a creation of man." 

A prominent major of army engin- 
eers, R. P. Breckenridge, has said

The Community Chest Drive is back 
this year on campus with a goal of 
heroic proportions. The chest committee, 
after iertoua deliberation, concluded 
that the tempo of the drive ought to be 
commensurate with the Stepped up rate 
of efficiency and sacrifice to which the 
country as a whole has been geared. 
Thus, members of the student body, 
along with members of the faculty are 
asked to rally to the cause of humanity 
by raising the sum of S2500. This is 
an increase of $1000 over last year's 
goal of $1500. 

It seems to be an inevitable result, 
unfortunately, that whenever an at- 
tempt is made in a worthy, positive 
direction, loud cries of skepticism and 
defeatism arise from certain well oiled 
throats, whose owners are quick to des- 
tructive criticism, but who never seem 
to work up enough enthuiasm for con- 
structive comment and work. 

It seems to be a very difficult matter 
to impress upon the college student the 
fact that he is a member of a unique 
group, having at its disposal the most 
worthwhile thinking that has ever been 
done, and that it is a result of this her- 
itage, that he must become aware of 
his responsibility to the rest of mankind. 
This is what differentiates him from the 
ignorant, the narrow-minded, and the 
intolerant. This is why his conscience 
should cause him to be willing to forego 
certain immediate luxuries, in order 
that students with whom he is in no 
way personally acquainted, in China, in 
Greece, in France and in Germany, may 
not only actually survive, but also up- 
hoM the tradition of education. 

The higher goal of this year's drive, 
will necessitate a greater effort on the 
part of all. Massachusetts State College 
is not an institution of learning noted 
for the wealth of its student body and 
alurrni. But it is significant that wo 
were given an honorable mention in the 
WoHd Student Service handbook for 
our contribution to that cause last year. 
ft! in« with other colleges, which are 
financially out of our range. This is in- 
d<> d a tribute to the spirit of group 
effort which this college as a whole can 

display. The faculty-student field hockey 
game, which was played last Saturday 
in freezing weather, was well attended 
and was another example of the kind 
of spirit this college is capable of dis- 
playing. The general atmosphere of 
good fellowship, and the willing res- 
ponse of both student and faculty in 
contributing money to the "hat" which 
was passed for the benefit of the Com- 
munity Chest drive are optimistic har- 
bingers for the coming drive. 

It is hoped that the facts as they 
are presented will help to spur us on 
to the attainment of our goal this year, 
just as it was reached last year. Each 
student is urged to consider carefully 
and honestly what he or she can con- 
tribute. It is needless to say that these 
are momentous times and require sever- 
er sacrifice, and that the old idea of 
"business as usual" has been scrapped 
like one of Hitlers' treaties. It is nec- 
essary to say that as conscientious in- 
dividuals, we should see to it as much 
as possible that the intended 82500 does 
not remain only a symbol of \vhat we 
would like to do, but what we have

In our attempts to give the campus 
a jazz education, we have intentionally 
overlooked commercial swing. With due 
regard for the merits of American 
dance music, it must be admitted that 
our popular orchestras do not play jazz. 
How could they, when, to a great ex- 
tent, even the solos are played directly 
from music sheets or from memory? As 
a consequence, we call genuine jazz 
art of a high calibre and dance music 
splendid entertainment. 

The revival of the use of violins in a 
dance orchestra by Artie Shaw repre- 
sented not only what Shaw called "an 
attempt to combine the better elements 
of swing and classical music," but also 
an attempt to introduce dance music 
as a phase of musical art. This experi- 
ment was not altogether a failure. Shaw- 
succeeded in convincing many people 
that the medium in which his orchestra 
played was an artistic one. Harry James, 
for one, was so convinced that he car- 
ried on the experiment in his own band. 
Suppose we investigate this Jame outfit 
and try to define what it has produced. 

The most distinguishing feature of 
Harry James' orchestra is its instru- 
mentation. Led by an inspired trumpet- 
ist, this orchestra has one of the finest 
brass sections to be found in any popu- 
lar orchestra. The blending of brass 
with strings is an innovation producing 
musical effects which were previously 
unheard of. Added to this is a splendid 
reed section led by a youthful tenor 
man, "Corky" Corcoran, and a steady 
and unftashy rhythm section, undoubt- 
edly adopted from Count Basie's idea of 
what rhythm should be. 

Helen Forrest is a favorable addition 
to Harry James' orchestra. She has al- 
ways been at one with the best and 
should feel at home with this organiza- 
tion. There is more than a slight element 
of the blues in her voice, more than orig- 
inality in her style, more than simplicity 
in her interpretation of a tune. All as- 
pects of her vocalizing are secondary to 
her naturalness. Mr. James' arrangers 
have aptly applied their talents in build- 
ing songs around Miss Forrest, but we 
are surprised to see that they have done 
so little in this respect with the old 
"pop" tunes such as "I Surrender Dear" 
and "Lover Come Back to Me." 

But most salient of all is Harry James 
himself. His tone is a throw-back from 
the days when he was a child player in

There has been mention around cam- 
pus that after Thanksgiving the frater- 
nity vie party will be a thing of the past. 
It has been authentically ascertained 
that the officials of this college are not 
contemplating such a move. However it 
affords an occasion for the morbid con- 
templation of a vic-party-less existence. 

To all, except perhaps the termites of 
Goodell, this would be a major calamity. 
The vie party is by far the most popular 
social institution on this campus, exclud- 
ing the big weekends. The Drill Hall in- 
formal (more aptly expressed as a barn 
brawl) could never replace it. And Am- 
herst, being a conservative little hamlet, 
is no sparkling light in the entertain- 
ment world on a Friday or a Saturday 
night. There are of course Sards', the 
Lord Jeff, Grandi's, and the modestly 
withdrawn Joe's Diner, all of which of- 
fer no better pastime than feeding (?) 
one's face. 

There's the Amherst theater, but 
even Gable and Duck can become boring 
upon steady consumption. So, it is the 
pleasure of this column to dispel any 
consternation caused by the rumor 
which relegates the vie party to the 
happy hunting ground of new tires and 
tankfuls of gasoline for the duration. 

The past weekend saw the final out- 
come of sorority rushing with the ap- 
proximate total of ninety more little 
Helens of Troy floating about campus. 
(These are the faces that launched a 
thousand sisterships.) 

The spectators at last Saturday's 
hockey game between the faculty and 
the coeds (2-2 in favor of the coeds) 
were more than generous to the Com- 
munity Chest. Profit ye by their

This week we are not trying to be 
funny, so it is not our fault if anyone 

A long time ago, even before cities 
and nations, some man somehow figured 
out that there was something more to 
life than just attaining things for his 
own benefit, that service to Man was 
Man's ultimate possibility of existence. 
And even if he did not do much about 
it, it was a pretty high concept for an 
animal which, perhaps, arose from 
nothing more than the warm, stagnant 
waters of a muddy pool. 

The concept was only a beginning. 
As always, an idea which is good is the 
product of many minds, and more men 
came to know the concept by themselves, 
and others came to hear of it, and even 
if these latter did not know its truth in 
their hearts, the idea was present, 
which alone was progress. All of the 
physical appetites of men were opposed 
to this concept, and that it has survived 
despite this is a proof of its immortality, 
or perhaps even a greater proof of Man. 

But generations lived and died, and 
the concept was enlarged and elaborated, . 
and sometimes it was almost lost under 
the dogma and ritual which men so 
love, and sometimes most men seemed 
to have forgotten it completely. But al- 
most miraculously Man always returned 
to it during his darkest and most hope- 
less hours, and its truth grew in the 
minds of many men, and also in the 
hearts of some. 

Myriads of great prophets have come 
to reaffirm this concept; great religions 
have laid their foundations upon it; and 
the need for it has never lessened, for 
without it Man would destroy himself. 

Today, despite the advances made by 
Man, the need in the world is great, so 
great that only sacrifice by those who 
have even a little can save those who 
have nothing. Millions need the bare 
necessities of food and warmth ; mil- 
lions more the bare necessities of truth 
and beauty without which Man, because 
he is more than an animal spiritually 
if not physically, cannot survive. 

No unseen power will work miracles 
to supply these needs, for that would 
solve nothing. Only the miracle of 
Man's goodness can lessen suffering and 
eventually stop it; only that could be 
permanent. And while all that cannot 
happen for many years, every action 
of Man to help others at a sacrifice to 
himself is a step towards the eventual 
fulfillment of the great concept, and of 
a lasting peace on earth. 

And that, regardless of what anybody 
may say, is the real reason we are ask- 
ing you to contribute to the Community 

subjective experience with the best that 
man has expressed? 

3. To give practice in formulating 
discriminative, tentative, indivualistic, 
but undogmatic opinions? 

4. To further the development of a 
! reflective synthesis — your own philos- 
ophy of life and its living? 

5. Should every "course" be a differen- 
tial admixture of these elements? 

6. Is it possible to devise a permanent 
"best" curriculum for these purposes? 

7. Is it essential for students as well 
as instructors to recognize the content 
afid approach to real education? 

8. Could every instructor improve his 
I techniques in furthering real educa- 

0. Are very many students construc- 
tively critical of what they are purchas- 
ing with their parents' money and their 
own time? 

10. Will you ever have a chance to

Hort Show Draws 
Very Small Crowd 

About three hundred visitors at- 
tended the shows held in place of the 
annual horticulture show in the green- 
houses Saturday and Sunday. Flower 
arrangements were staged in Compe- 
tition and prizes were given in each 
of the three classes. Awards for the 
first class of large-flowered chrysan- 
themums were given t<> Victor I.eono- 
wicz '4.'{, and Mary Bowler '48. Frizes 
for vase arrangements of small-flow- 
ered chrysanthemums were won by 
Barbara Burke '41, Fdwin Fedeli '11, 
and Edwin La Montague, Jr.. '11. The 
awards in the third class for bowl ar- 
rangements of small-flowered chrys- 
anthemums *rere given t<> Dorothy 
Corner, Mary Conlon and Barbara

The horticulture show could not be 
held this year for several reasons, all 
originating from the war. First of all, 
the gas and tire rationing would pre- 
vent the usual large group of visitors 
from attending the Show. Also, Hol- 
yoke and Northampton Florists' and 
Gardeners' Club, which in the past has 
contributed to the show, is not staging 
any flower shows this year, Finally, 
because of the decrease in the num- 
ber of students in the Stockbridge 
school this year, there was lacking 
sufficient manpower for staging the

tions are not so much hidden as blend- 
ed into the general landscape. 

In many of the smaller cities and 
towns, for example, particularly where 
few buildings rise very high, strate- 
gic targets may be almost fully ob- 

ured bf the widespreading branches 
of Stature shade trees. Anyone who 
lass looked off from the summit of 

fount Holyoke or Mount Sugsrloaf 

will have remarked how trees serve 
to obscure and render indistinct the 
of streets and the roof lines and 
walls of buildings.

Srget more indistinct and therefore 
1 irder to hit. 

Bui now let's suppose the city or 
town is subjected to an attack from 
the air. Dr. MeKenzie points out how 
the presence of trees will greatly 
minimize the damage caused by high 
explosives and other attacks, both on 
personnel and property. 

"Trees serve in the same way as 
they do during a rainstorm," Dr Mc- 
Kenzie points out. "The larger upper 
blanches may serve to detonate bombs 
before they hit the street itself. Ex- 
ploding in the air, the bomb is less 
likely to cause widespread property 
damage. Since its fragments are dis- 
charged at random after explosion 
in the tree, at least some of them are 
slowed down, deflected, or stopped 
by branches of the tree itself or by 
neighboring trees. 

"Or again, suppose the shell ex- 
plodes on contact with the pavement 
but near a tree. Then the root system 
>f trees in that area will serve to 
dissipate the shock to some extent 
since they represent a yielding sub- 
stance. Insofar as they may serve to 
hold together soil areas, they may 
provide some additional protection 
against damage of gas, sewer and 
water mains. 

"Now again" he continued, "sup- 
pose that an enemy plane s w o ope d

In the first place, if the street were 
well shaded, the pilot could not see

Stockbridge - Deerf ield Game Ends 
In 6-6 Deadlock; Season Successful 

Campus Camera 



liy Alyrt Davis 
• With a slippery held a disadvan- 
tage to both teams the Stockbridge 
and Deerfield squads fought to a 6-6 
deadlock last Friday afternoon, to end 
tiie most successtul season stock- 
bridge has ever had. 

The first half consisted of running 
plays by both teams and several in- 
complete passes by Deertield. It was 
late in the second period when Amell 
intercepted a Deerfield pass on the 
Deerfield :>5 yard line to bring our 
team deep into the enemy territory 
in possesion of the ball. Tryon, Stev- 
ens, and Bak ran four plays and made 
a first down. Tryon again made his 
run good for 3 yards. On the second 
down an attempted pass failed, but 
on the third down Joe Bak threw a 
well-aimed pass from the 22 to Tryon 
over the goal line for the first tally 
of the afternoon. The powerful Deer- 
field linemen charged in and Marsou- 
bian had to hurry his placement and 
missed the uprights by inches. The 
half ended with Stockbridge in the 
lead 6-0. 

Stockbridge kicked off to start the 
2nd half, and the Deerfield gridsters 
with a powerful line, marched deep 
into the Stockbridge territory. After 
gaining 4 first downs, our men stop- 
ped them and finally gained poses- 
sion of the ball after a 4th down pass 
had failed. Tryon kicked out of dan- 
ger on the 3rd down to end the 3rd 

Early in the last period Deerfield 
received the ball on the Stockbridge 
40. The "Academy-men" ran 4 plays 
for a first down. A long completed 
pass brought them to the Stockbridge 
10. They picked up 9 yards on their 
first down and Marks went over from 
the 1 to tie the score 6-6. The Deer- 
field try for the point failed when 
there was a bad pass from center, 
and our linemen rushed the kicker. 

After running 1 downs, Tryon a- 
gain kicked for the Aggie-Men. Deer- 
field now launched an aerial attack 
in a final attempt to score a«ain be- 
fore the time ran out. They completed 
4 out of 7 passes good for 15, 12, 20, 
and 12 yards respectively, and the 
game ended as they attempted an 
eigth pass. 

Unquestionably the wet field and 
ball had some influence on the game, 
but it was a well fought contest by 
evenly matched teams.

the prints are outstanding examples 
of the so-called "control processes", 
whereby the photographer use I chem- 
icals and pigment to alter the photo- 
graph to suit his taste. Differing 
from the clear-cut, personalised, pres-

atmosphere, and many it re- 
quired at least 48 man-hours to pro-

as compared with last year and is 
four times as great as the enrolment 
in this subject three years ago. 

This unprecedented increase in 
Spanish may be interpreted, he said. 
as manifestation of an increasing a- 
wareness on the part of students that 
occupational opportunities in the 
Spanish-American countries will in- 
crease greatly following the present 

"Part of the interest, also" he added, 
"is no doubt due to the increased at- 
tention being given to Pan American 
problems by this government, espec- 
ially as the attitude of South Ameri- 
can countries affects the unity of the 
hemispheric war effort." 

I>r. I raker pointed to the contin- 
uing enrolment in the study of Ger- 
man as an encouraging sign after the 
hysterical action taken in many sec- 
lions of the country during the first 
World War. 

"Continuing enrolment in German," 
he stated, "is evidence of a realistic 
attitude on the part of our students 
who find it desirable to know as much 
as possible about our enemies as well 
as about our allies." 

Drawing one further comparison 
between the situation at present and 
that obtaining during the first World 
War, Dr. Fraker added that students 
are approaching language studies with 
increased seriousness as compared to 
previous years. This is marked dis- 
tinction to the situation in 1917 and 
191S when seriousness of study of 
foreign languages dropped apprecia- 

Concluding, he stated that, "the 
students in Spanish seem to be much 
more earnest in their desire to know 
the language. The vague hankering 
seems to have given way to serious 
effort that reflects the interest of the 
western world in our neighbors whose 
speech differs from our own. Appar- 
ently for the first time, we are mak- 
ing a permanent gain in knowledge 
of the countries south of the Rio 
Grande and of the language they

The Maroon and White gridnien 
dropped their season's closing game 
to Tufts in the freezing winds of Med- 
ford last Saturday by a score of 7-0. 
Tufts' lone tally wa. the result of a 
75-yard sustained drive in the Brat 
period. Aided by Sophomore Sylvio 
Kpil'ano, who subbed for left half- 
back, by Captain Bob liisset, and by 
fullback Ratter, the Jumboinen rapi- 
tali/.ed on end sweeps, off guard plays, 
and the T formation until they reached 
State's four yard stripe. Their Cap- 
tain Bisset clashed thru center to land 
the oval in the pay dirt. Charlie Por- 
tia converted the point after by a 
place kick with Bob Bisset holding 
the ball. 

Tufts kicked to State. Having U-en 
booted offside, the ball was brought 
to the 80. Two plays later the Bay 
staters fumbled, and Tufts was on 
the march once more. l!ut this time 
Hargyaen stiffened their defense 

and held their rivals six yards from 
the zero line. 

Although several short but spirited 
drives marked the second quarter, 
neither team succeeded in threatening. 
In the third period, the .Medford hoys 
hit their stride again and marched 
a Baystate boot from their 25 yard 
line to the State 12-yard stripe. The 
attack was stalled there, however, 
after the Jumbos were thrown back 
for several losses. 

Massachusetts made her itrongeet 
bid for victory in the last of third 
period when the Campbell-sparked 
team m a rch ed from their 12-yard 

marker to the Medford combine's six. 
Hut successive thrusts were of no avail 
and the .lumbomen took over. The 

last quarter was ■ repetition of the 

second, with neither team threaten- 
ing the paydirt. 

On the icy fields of Medford the 
Maroon and White eleven took their 
final lashing in a season which has 
been punctuated by defeats. Coach

All-American Team Ballot 

A week or so ago. the Sports Department of the Collegian received a 
communique from the National Intercollegiate Sport Writers Association 
asking the Sports Editor to participate in selecting an All-American football 

Since the Collegian is a student publication, we feel it only fair to let 
the selection for the school be a product of the students. Therefore, a ballot 
for the first and second choice Ail-American College team is printed below. 
Naval Pre-FIight players are not to be included since they have had previous 
college experience. The final ballot which the Sports Department will submit 
to the Sports Writers Association will be the summation of all the student 
ballots received. All ballots must be submitted to the Sports Editor of the 
Collegian on or before next Tuesday either by mail or by leaving them at the 
Collegian office. 

A ballot is also provided for members of the State team. So let's go lads! 
It'll be your choices that decide the team.

By Irmarie Scheuneman '45 
Mr. Karol J. Kucinski, soil conser- 
vation project supervisor, has con- 
structed a wind tunnel behind Stock- 
bridge Hall. The wind tunnel is the 
largest one of its type in use for soil 
erosion studies in this country. The 
tunnel is 32 feet long by three feet 
high and three feet wide, especially 
designed for local conditions. 

The research project of soil erosion 
control in the Connecticut Valley is, 
onlv in its initial stage. The tunnel , 
is being used to determine whether | 
there is any relation between the phys- 
ical-chemical properties of the soils 
and their susceptibility to wind ero- 
sion. The "dust" storms witnessed in 
certain pmta of Massachusetts, par- 
ticularly in the Connecticut Valley, 
not only cause a serious loss to the 
farmer both in soil fertility and dam- 
age to crops, but are a nuisance to 
the general public. Very little, if any- 
thing of a practical nature has been 
done to mitigate dust blowing in the 
Connecticut Valley, which is usually 
worst in early spring and late fall. 

It has been observed that certain 
types of soil in Massachusetts are 
most affected by wind, in general, 
these wind-blown soils are coarser 
than the soils least affected. It is 
important from both the practical 
and academic viewpoints to find out 
just what the true physical-chemical 
properties are which control the de- 
cree of erodibility of a soil. It is also 
important to discover which of these 
properties are controllable and what 
takes place in the soil complex when 
one or more of these properties are 
changed by management or natural 

During the past year the Massachu- 
setts Experiment Station, in coopera- 
, [on with the Soil Conservation Serv- 
ice, has been studying the problem of 
wind erosion. The project is only in 
its initial stage. Soils from wind- 
eroded and uneroded areas are being 
examined. A 15-horse power electric 
motor 'hives a 4-blade airplane pro- 
peller to generate wind velocities as 
high as 50 miles per hour in the tun- 

nel The various soils under investiga- 
tion are placed in the work section of 
the tunnel and observations are made 
through glass doors along the sides 
of the tunnel. Instruments are usee 
to record the wind velocities and 
am ounti of erosion. Preliminary trials 
with the tunnel have given interesting 
results, and it is expected that the 
information finally obtained will help 
greatly in understanding why certain 
' soils erode more than others, and pos- 
sibly aid in establishing means for 
their stabilization. 

Many of us on the State campus 
know Doric Alviani as a producer of 
first class operettas, but few of us 
know of his abilities as a composer 
of operettas. The well known campus 
music director is interested in com- 
position and hopes to make this at 
(east part of his life work. 

Robert McCartney '42 and Mr. Al- 
vlani composed an operetta together 
sometime ago and entered it in a 
competition sponsored by Station 
«/GN which is run in cooperation 
with the Chicago Tribune. This operet- 
ta was based on Annapolis and was 
entitled 'United We Love." About 120 
operettas were submitted and "United 
We Love" won first place. Alviani 
wrote the music and McCartney wrote 
the words. The operetta, according to 
Doric- as all Statesmen know him, 
was written mostly at night. The two 
worked until well into the morning 
many times. 

Doric is an extremely energetic and 
dynamic man. He has always been 
extremely busy, taking care of sev- 
eral different jobs at the same time, 
and studying and improving himself 
on the side. Only this year he has 
taken over as director of the State 
College Band. 

In addition to being an accomplished 
singer, Mr. Alviani can play the violin 
cello, the piano and the organ. He 
is the organist and choir director of 
the First Congregational Church in 
Amherst. He received his Master of 
Education Degree at Boston Univers- 
ity last year and is now working for 
his Ph. D.

Ever heard of Tulsa? To people who 
remember their elementary geography 
Tulsa is but an oil city in Oklahoma. But 
to the millions of football fans through- 
out the nation Tulsa is the little miracle 
of the current football season. The ex- 
ploits Of Tulsa need not be here repeat 
ed It is sufficient to note that Tulsi 
went through the current football sea- 
son untied and undefeated. It is like- 
wise unnecessary to tell how Massachu- 
setts State made out in football. 

Who in the eastern part of the United 
States, particularly in New England, 
ever hoard of Tulsa as an educational an art_ 
institution before their current football 
success? Tulsa has had an immense 
amount of favorable publicity during 
the past two months, publicity which 
Massachusetts State College certainly 
could benefit by

outfielder. No deatils of the ballplayer's 
identity could be presented except that 
he was very tall, left-handed, and quite 
a slugger. Evidently the great man's 
batting eye has become somewhat rusty, 
because the sturdy little State mounds- 
man, using only a big jug-handle curve, 
shut him out in numerous attempts. No 
runs, no hits, no errors. 

The basketball season is about to be 
ushered in, which means that Bish, 
champion fly swatter of the men's 
locker room and merciless holder of 
the future, will have to climb out from 
between the bars of his little cage and 
take over the job of operating the score- 
board. We understand that this position 
has always been given to the portly 
gentleman because he is one of the few 
people around who can count past ten 
without removing his shoes. 

We are proud to announce that in 
fulfilling our promise to those contri-

thus far kissed 372 girls, 14 little sis-

Recent tappings and hammerings 
have told us that a Commando course 
is being constructed in the cage. Upon 
further investigation we learned that 
this veritable factory of physical 
strength would consist of ten fast laps 
around the track, climbing a 400 foot 
rope in 25 seconds, six laps of the pb- 
sticle course which includes scaling a 
14 foot wall, turning 216 cartwheels, 
and then into the swimming pool to a 
watery grave.

Hy George Benoit 

There have been many complaints 
lately about the small number of records 
which now decorate the counters of the 
music shops. We could, like good pa- 
triots, grin and bear the critical record 
situation which confronts us, but 
things have not reached that sad a 
point yet. Perhaps now would be a good 
time for us to give you a few tips on 
the records that are available. 

Decca has waxed five albums which 
are remarkably representative of good 
jazz. Some of these albums we have 
reviewed before but since they are still 
available, it would not hurt to look into 
them again. The first, and probably the 
best is a collection of Chicago jazz. 
It features such men as Jimmy Mc- 
Partland, Max Kaminsky, Charly Tea- 
garden, PeeWee Russell, Joe Sullivan, 
Jess Stacy, Bud Freeman, George Wett- 
ling, and a host of others whose music 
is superlative The best three numbers 
in the album are Sister Kate, All the 
World Is Waiting for the Sunrise, and 
China Nov. We must admit, however, 
that it is rather unfair to choose any 
numbers over others because they are 
all good. 

The second isue represents New Or- 
leans jazz This album, featuring such 
artists as Benny Carter. Pete Brown, 
Joe Marsala, and Billy Kyle is good if 
you like the type of music. New Orleans 
is hard to understand, but once it is 
caught on to, it will be greatly appre- 
ciated for the originality which it ex- 
presses, if for nothing else. 

The third representation features 
white musicians exclusively. It contains 
the recordings of three small outfits led 
by Gene Krupa, George Wettling, and 
the late Bunny Berrigan. Although this 
third effort is the least exciting of all, 
it does point out some new jazz con- 
ceptions and especially what commer- 
cial music has contributed to jazz. 

The fourth features the top colored 
artists. The improvisations of the great 
Coleman Hawkins made up a good part 
of the work. Fletcher Henderson and 
Benny Carter direct two small groups 
and show us what aristocratic jazz of 
a few years back can do today. 

The fifth is a mixture. Jimmy Mc- 
Partland, Jimmy Noone, and Art Hodes 
I are the leaders. Don't miss Georgia 
Cakewalk, The Blues Jumped a Rabbitt, 
and I'm ALL Bound Round the Mason 
Dixon Line. You should not have too 
much trouble in obtaining these albums 
at any good music store, but don't give 
up if you fail in the first attempt. 

But no longer is there worry of diabetes 
C'est la guerre. 
Stockings : 

Though patriotic, we find it quite a trial 
To go about with legs of lisle — 
C'est la guerre. 

Last of all. but not the least, 
There is a shortage of that noble beast- 
Gone with our sugar, cream ,and gravy, 
Into the Army, Air-Corps, and the Navy 
C'est la guerre.

Priorities Will Make Operation Of 
College More Difficult In Future 

By Alma Kowe 

( overnment priorities on "critical" 
|.i tirials needed for the war effort 
v already having an effect on Massa- 
fhu.setts State College- 

The WPB is doing its best to keep 
I'm- colleges running as they did before 
|he war. However, all colleges and 
Educational institutions are limited to 
(l/'OO a year for construction, alter- 
ations, and improvements. This res- 
(raint is a part of the WPB's "stop 
instruction order", [#-41. 
Materials such as nails and wire, 
ksed in the maintenance and supply 
department are strictly limited. Elec- 
|iic supplies and inside and outside 
liring are going to be difficult to get 
[ »r the duration. The business office 
jas often had to refuse the requests 
'lepartments for new equipment 
ft cause the articles wanted were made 
p "critical" materials. 

There is nothing today, made of a 
I'itical material, which does not have 
1'iiority. Some of the materials are 
'uminum, chromium, copper, iron, 
I'eel, and rubber. Each month the 
manufacturers send to the WPB state- 
ments on the amount of these critical 
iterials they will require for the fol- 
ding month. Each would-be purchas- 
', the army, navy, lend-lease pro- 
l am or domestic purchases also sends 
order to the WPB. From these 
I lers. the WPB determines how much 
a critical material the manufacturer 
|m have. The demand is from one to 
|n times more than the supply, and 
is difficult for the WPB to try to 
\ tisfy everyone. The orders of the 
"m- and navy, of course, have pre- 

cedence over domestic purchasers. 

The orders of the purchasers are 
classified under various headings, USA 
for the army, USN, navy, LL lease- 
lend program, and DP, domestic pur- 

Three State Students 
At 4H Convention 

Three State students are among 
fourteen Massachusetts delegates to 
the National 4-H Congress which is 
being held in Chicago from November 
29 to December 2. The three, all fresh- 
men, are Mabel Mason. Swansea, Mil- 
ton Gray Jr., Brewster, and Merton 
Chouinard, Hopklnton. 

Mabel Mason went a> state winner 
in the girls record contest. She also 
received a $200.00 scholarship. Her 
rewards were based upon various 
project work, including poultry club, 
sewing, food work, dairy work, gar- 
dening, and home furnishing. This 
summer she canned over 450 cans of 
food; made 21 garments; re-finished 
4 rooms; took care of over 200 chick- 
ens; and cared for one-half acre of 
home gardens. 

Milton Cray Jr. is one of eight in 
the nation who received a trip to 
Chicago and a $100.00 war bond. He 
was the winner of a victory garden 

Merton Chouinard was the winner 
in the farm account contest. He also 
received a $200.00 scholarship. 

The trips to Chicago are awarded 
by the state, while the scholarships 
are sectional prizes.

Country Observes "Share The Meat 
For Victory" Program This Week 

Campus Camera 


This week all OVS* the country is 
••share the meat for victory week" ... 
all eating places and homes it was an- 
nounce.! today by Mi^ May Foley of 
the home economics extension service 
here at the college. Last week Miss 
Foley attended a conference at the 
Office of Defense Health and Welfare 
Service in Washing.., D. C. This 
conference was called to make an ed- 
ucational plan for food shortages as 
they come along. Meat is the item 
which is the scarcest now. 

Miss Foley cited the three reasons 
that despite the fact that this year 
the United States raised more too, 
than any other year, there would still 
he a shortage. The armed forces are 
U8 lng most of the food because most 
of the men in the forces eat better 
and more food than they did ... civil- 
ian life. The second reason is that we 
j.'re sending food to the allies, and last- 
ly that buying P«wer of the civilians 
is greater but there is less to spend 
.nonev on so they buy more food 

Meat alternates .s the new name 
eiven to those food stuffs which will 
take the place of meat. Miss Foley 
stated ... conclusion that there is no 
possibility that nutrition will suffer 
for a year or two if we use OUT food 

wisely and waste nothing.

The war board conducted the survey

perform services outside of the line J 
of their regular teaching duties. Many 
faculty members have been drawn into 
war service, leaving gaps to be filled 
by those remaining. In addition, spe-

Colleges Hit In Europe 

"Why is it that in the enslaved 
countries of Europe the hand of the 
dictators falls so heavily upon colleges 
and universities' It is certainly not 
because of sheer blind rage that Hit- 
ler, both at home and abroad, has 
struck with savage fury against aca- 
demic freedom. A sure instinct leads 
totalitarian rulers to undermine and 
overthrow those citadels of indepen- 
dent thought from which free men and 
free women can proclaim the truth 
and rally the forces of democracy. By 
that same token, we who are defend- 
ing by force of arms the democratic- 
way of life must cherish our liberal 
arts colleges as never before. Our best 
revenge on our enemy is not be like 
him. The surest way to fortify the 
American way of life, that strange 
compound of idealism, tolerance, and

Holy Cuss massacred the Eagle,

through Georgia (Tech), and Tuesday 
it snowed for the first time; so what? 

So it mean.- that our favorite spurt, 

basketball, will soon be in full swing 

in colleges about the country n«>\v 
that the football fan has stopped gasp- 
ing at the past season of upsets. And 
we will go on record now as saying 
that State should have the best bas- 
ketball squad in some time this winter. 

We were watching the squad work 
out the other afternoon and we liked 
what WO saw. Coach Hargersheimer 
has whittled the aspirants down to a 
, eighteen with several sopho- 
mores and freshmen in this group. 
Poor lettermen remain to bolster the 
squad, namely, Captain Tad Bokina, 
Kick Maloy, Tom Kelly, and Ed Podo- 

One combination that seemed to 
work well together was that of Maloy, 
Kneeland, Bokina. Kelly and Was- 
kiewicz. Kneeland and Waskiewicz are 
tioth transferSi Kneeland coining to 
State last season and Waskiewicz 
only a recent addition from Idaho. 
This last lad should see plenty of ac- 
tion for the Maroon and White, lie is

has the weight to go with the height. 
He is light on his feet and fast and 
above, all, he seems to know what to

Track Workouts Begin 
For K of C Opener 

The Stale varsity track team is 
preparing for its whiter season and 
anticipating the opener at the Knights 
of Columbus meets at Boston on Jan- 
uary 30th. 

The team has a fair nucleus with 
which to work as most of the cross- 
country team will continue into the 
winter. However, the ranks are still 
depleted, especially as regards the re- 
lay team. It is expected that Captain 
Don Parker will spark the team this 
year aided by Charlie Warner, Ge o rge 
dwell and Joe Alf.eri. Considerable 
help should come from freshman Alec 
< lampbell, also. 

All freshmen interested in winter 
track are urged to try out immediate- 
ly, however, since serious training 
will start after the Christmas vaca- 
tion. The team needs men so, come 
on, Frosh, here's your chance!

Soccer Team Has 
Strong Finish 

Larry Briggs' soccer lean, had a 
Satisfactory season even though the 
record of 1 win, ."J ties and 1 hisses is 
.... impressive. But it is always the 
finish of the season that counts, and 
the Briggsmen showed power in their 
last two names. They fought a strong 
Harvard team and an undefeated 
Rensselaer team to ties. These games 
are the satisfaction of the season, giv- 
ing the hooters a good finish. 

The first game was played at Storrs. 
"iincct nut against a lighting I Diver- 
sity of Connecticut team. It was a 
good start for Captain Ed Podolak 
led his team off the field the victor, 
'2-1. Outstanding in this game was the 
duel of fullbacks, Podolak and Ih-ck 
of I 'Conn and neither man broke. 
But to offset this Kokoski and Podo- 
lak scored to break the i.e. 

State's second game was a different 
story. Dartmouth came here to play 
on Alumni field, and the Statesmen 
were on their heels. The big Orcen 
scored almost immediately after the 
kick-off. Iampietro came back with an 
eqoahsor I few minutes later. But 
from there on it was Dartmouth all 
the way, f)-l. 

The week later the team travelled 
to Ness London to engage the U, s. 
Coast Ouard school. The team fought 
hard against an equally strong team. 
The Ouardsmen led at the half 1-0. 
In the second half Coach Brigs shift- 
ed Giannotti to the left-inside posi- 
tion, and l>efore five minutes were 
over he had equalled the score. The 
scrimmage was decidely in our favor, 
but the punch was lacking at the 

After this game a disastrous period 
ensued, lor three games State was 
overwhelmed, First it was 5-0 by Wil- 
liams, then 1-2 by Trinity, and on Am- 
herst week-end it was 4-0 by the Sa- 
brinas. The only thing to say on these 
games is to mention the play of Toodie 
Stebbins at center half, lie took over 
very well for Stan Oizicnski who was 
injured at Coast (Jtiard. Ed Podolak 
and Giannotti showed up very well on 
the defensive while Donovan and 
Bourdeau took care of the offensive. 

The last two games were excellent 
comebacks. With the two Gizienskis 
at center forward and inside, State 
obtained the necessary punch. The re- 
sults were good as the scores indi 
eate, 2 2 and 1-1. 

This was the first eai on that fresh- 
man have played varsity ball. Steb- 
bins, Donovan, Czarnecki, and Foster 
showed good Play. The team of Czar- 
necki and Podolak was due to an old 
combination started at Kasthampton. 
Their team play was excellent on de- 
fense. Stebbins was a very good de- 
fenseman and did his share of the 
offe ni e. Foster also filled in very well 
at the wing-half. Donovan, a good 
dribbler and team man, a rare combi-

Student Council 
To Sell War Stamp 
Corsages For Ball 

War Council To Organize 
Volunteer Work Corps To 
Assist In Physical Labor 

In conjunction with tho campus war 
effort, the student war council an- 
nounced several projects which will 
be undertaken before the holiday va- 
cation. Robert Denis, president, stated 
that tickets for war stamp corsages 
will be on sale in the library on Mon- 
day and Tuesday, December 14 and 
15. Orders for the corsages will be 
taken by members of the council for 
one week, starting Thursday, Decem- 
ber 10. Tickets must be purchased be- 
for the closing date, December 16, and 
ihey will be exchanged for eonoejoi 

at the Ball. 

The council reminded all students 
who wish to sign up as blood donors 

j that parent consent blanks must be 
filled out before names will be ac- 
cepted. Students may sign lists at 
fraternities, sororities, dormitories, 
and the cafeteria, or by contacting 

| members of the council. 

The third project undertaken by 

I this group is the organization of an 
emergency volunteer work corps. This 

[corps will perform emergency work 

I wherever and whenever needed, and 
the job will consist entirely of physi- 
cal labor. This group will consist of 
those who can work for a full day, and 
they will cooperate with the Boston 
id Maine Railroad and other agen- 
ries important in the war effort. All 
students interested in these projects 
lay apply to the council and consult 
subsequent editions of the Collegian 
for further information.

Military Ball Takes 
Christmas For Theme 

Russell J. McDonald, chairman of 
the Military Ball committee, announc- 
ed that the committee is conforming 
with new regulations in fireproofing 
the decorations for the dance on Dec. 
18, when Pete Cutler and his orches- 
tra will play. The theme will be based 
on Christmas season with emphasis on 
the lighting effect. These decorations 
will be inspected by licensed experts 
before the dance. 

A new method of electing the hon- 
orary colonel will be in effect this 
yer. Two representatives from each 
sorority have been nominated to repre- 
sent the respective group. They will 
compete for the honorary position 
with voting taking place the day be- 
fore the dance. The decision will be 
announced at the dance when Colonel 
Young will award her the commission 
as honorary colonel of the MSC cadet 
corps. The new colonel will review the 
corps in spring reviews and any other 
military functions. 

Tickets may be procured from any 
member of the committee. In addition, 
a representative in each fraternity is 
a salesman for the committee. The 
committee states that this dance, the 
only formal of the first semester, will 
be entirely equal to the expectations. 

Cadets from Boston University and 
the University of New Hampshire have 
been invited as guests of the corps. 
This is a custom which has prevailed 
for several years. It is expected that 
'•epresentatives of each of the other 
corps will attend to continue the tradi- 

The sale of war stamp corsages will 
be under the direction of the Student 
War Council, operating independently 
from the Ball committee. This project

History Requirement 
Announced Today 

Attention is called to a new re- 
quirement for graduation. Beginning 
with the class of 1944 all students 
who are to be certified for graduation 
must have completed a course in his- 
tory, to be selected from the group 
of courses specified below. 

History 29. American Democracy. 
This is a new course designed to meet 
the needs of the near requirement. It 
will be offered in both semester^. Im-- 
ginning in January, 1943, and will 
carry three credits. The course will 
deal mainly with American History 
since the Civil War, but will include 
a study of the Constitution and the 
development of our democratic ideals 
and institutions. Kmphasis will be 
placed on the relation of democracy 
to problems of the twentieth century; 
also on the place of the United States 
in world affairs with reference to 
international developments since 1918, 
the present war, and the problem of 

Instead of History 29, any one of 
the following courses may be counted 
as fulfilling the requirement: 

History 4 ,5, or f> (E ur o p e an His- 
tory, for freshmen). 

History 25 (American Government) 

History 59, or 60 (American His- 
tory, for juniors L 

Convocation next week should be 1 
especially interesting to the air mind- 
ed. Wing Commander Et Ashley Hall, 
who at present is tin the staff of the . 
Air Ministry of Kngland, will speak' 
to the college about aeronautics in 
Kngland and the part which the RAF 
is playing in this war. 

A record of Wing Commander Hall's 
past and present activities proves him 
an authority in his field. Before the 
war he was attached to the auxiliary 
air force and obtained his pilot's li- 
cense in 192N. He became vice-presi- 
dent of the Bristol and Wessex Aero- 
plane Club and a member of the rac- 
ing committee of the Royal Aero Club. 
He is the founder and a vice-president 
of the British Civil Aerodrome Owners 
Association and was chairman of an 
area committee of the air defense 
cadet corps from which the air train- 
ing corps was developed. He wa.i 
made a member of the Civil Air 
Guard Council. 

From 1929 to 19:54 Wing Command- 
er Hall served with the 501 Bomber 
Squadron. During the first six months 
of the war he commanded Balloon 
Squadron on Naval Protection; from 
19 10 to 1941 he was on Staff duty. 
In 1941 he was given command of the 
Cambridge University Air Squadron, 
and in his present post with the Air 
Ministry, he is concerned with all 
existing British University Air Squad- 

Wing Commander Hall is consid- 
ered a striking personality in aeron- 
autics in Kngland. Judging from that 
and from his favorable reception by 
students in other colleges, he will no 
doubt give a lecture of great interest 
and general appeal. 

The Koister Doisters will present 
their second annual interclass play on 
Friday evening, December II, at K 
o'clock, in Bowfcer Auditorium. The 
following plays will lie presented: 
Seniors, •Sleeping Dogs"; Juniors, 
"Evening Dress Fndospensible", Soph- 
omores, "Bride Maid"; Freshmen, 
"Firemen Save My Child". 

Dr. Fraker, IVof. i»:mce, and Mrs. 
Carl Lutge will judge the plays on: 
(1) choice of play and casting. (2) 
setting (including costumes, make-up, 
lighting), (:{) direction (groupings, 
movements, tempo, stage business), 
(4) acting (voices, memorization, pant-

audience appeal (in terms of illusion, 

entertainment, or other probable ob- 

The first play will be limited to a 
time of 25 minutes ami each following

One of the questions conf rooting the 
administration, the faculty,. and ^thestu 
dent body is the problem of what ^Mas 
...husetts State College can do to ren 
der more eff.stivv service to the toun 

trv at war. , 

Tt is a foregone conclusion that when 
J army' begins the ^.leges 
what sort of program to offer much ot 
the material taught will be of «»«* 
eiaTe grade for the benefit of those the 
LTv sends here. 11 is therefore the 
dutv of the college to offer as much as 
Potible in the iine of collegiate educa- 
tion while it is still perm.ssable to do 
ml -it the same time have a curncu- 
ul .onsistent with the best interests 
of the war effort. 

One of the best ways to offer a pro- 
gram consistent with the requirements 
of our armed forces and yet offer a 
speeded lip educational course is tc .adopt 
the plan outlined by Prof. Victor £ 
Rice in a letter to the editor which is 
printed on this page 

economics, freshman biology, sophomore 
science, the history of English litera- 
ture, public speaking, and certain de- 
partmental requirements. All of these 
subjects have a very definite place in a 
college curriculum when a general, well- 
rounded education is the goal of college. 
But this is war and these subjects serve 
only to delay the specialization which is 
so important in technical warfare. It 
would be expedient and certainly in step 
with the war effort to reduce the num- 
ber of credits required for graduation 
after dropping the above requirements. 
The time has come for the college to 
take the initiative in offering a so 
program for the duration of the war. 
This program must be offered with the 
realization that the army has not yet 
spoken and therefore this training must 
be based on fundamentals. It must be of 
such a nature as to permit early special- 
ization and therefore early graduation. 
It may mean the expansion of such de- 
partments as engineering. Our present 
speed up program is that in name only. 
It is satisfactory from the teaching 
angle only because the concentration of 
a summer session permits more effec- 
tive presentation and assimilation of

Just a few more words on the records 
which are still available. Not long ago, 
Columbia waxed four records by Teddy 
Wilson. These are now selling in album 
form and although we have mentioned 
these before, we would now like to en- 
large on what we said. Four numbers 
are last Rossetta, Them There Eyes, 
I Know That You Know, and ( hina Boy 
IW Rice believes that the college illustrate perfectly the ease with which 
should 'do something without having to Teddy Wilson plays. These "umbers are tal 
. 1 1 what to do. He suggests that on also remarkably representative of Wil- 
u i • „f tW rxnerience of the Bri- sons style- many runs, rhythmic left 
! h V ,aS n/Irn! "ed to meet the hand, and suggestive of Earl Hines 
Pchnt-u needs c,f the army be offered in '-'trumpet piano.*' This four makes us 

reminicenl of the old Goodman trio. 
The other four numbers in the album 
are all old pop tunes. Smoke Gets in 
Your Eyes. T Can't Get Started. Body 
and Soul, and These Foolish Things 
have never been played better on the 
piano. Wilson uses the same tricks in 

that we publish at this time, a list of 
potential Christmas Gifts for various 
campus notables. Therefore we suggest: 
Basil Wood: a key for the middle 
door at the library. 

Dr. Gamble: a new set of stairs 
down which to throw his examination 
booklets, thereby determining the mark 

Dr. Torrey: fifty beautiful Ricinus 
Communis for "Torrey's Follies," open 
all night. 

Prof. Glick: a book, "How Green 
Was My Valley and What Are You Go- 
ing to Do in a Case Like That." 

Dr. Fessenden : a new starting gate 
for the Fessenden Sweepstakes. 

Alpha Sigma Phi: fifteen or more 

Kappa Sigma: a gross of life-pre- 
servers to save them from the Waves. 
Kappa Alpha Theta: a new name 
or a new abbreviation. 

Nap the Barber: a new pair of 
clippers for his clip joint. 

Tom Moran: a new paint job for 
his car: then jack up the paint and 
drive a new car under it. 

Dean Burns: a new roomate. He's 
sick of me. 

Sig Ep: a box of dog biscuits and 
some raw meat. 

Bish : a gold plated, self bailing, back- 
fire-proof spitoon. 

Dr. Rohr: no more eight o'clock 

Our landlady, Mrs. Newkirk: a 
switchboard operator to handle mid- 
night phone calls. Also a new tenant 
when this column appears. ' 

The Cafe: one of the hard liquor 
licenses to be issued in town. 

Joe Rogers : anything dirty, he can 

take it. 

Pop Barret : half a dozen assistants 
for his one man newspaper, and some- 
body to take his picture for a change.

The writer was interested in and heartened 
bv the editorial in the Massachusetts Colleen 
for December 3, 11)42, entitled "Education and 
the Army ° Evidently, all is not well on the 
• K-ational front. Education has not adjuj ted 
as fullv as it must for the all-out Wsi effort

fs 1 o set n K s right. It is a very vital OBW- 
on^, to "who. is destined tc .play the tune 
to which education must dance ? The nrnter 
knows of no recognized educational leader 
who has been particularly critical o t Je Ja 
moves made by the armed forces. Educators 
on't know very much about war making but 
do know enough to keep silent on the efforts 
of others trained in those fields The fear 
sec. 'to be growing that Army leaders, on 
the other hand, are about to take ever ed- 
ucational plant lecture, laboratories and library 
and there is well merited fear over what the 
results might be. The press in the ast two 
>r three days has contained two articles deal- 
ing with this general problem of higher educa- 
tion in Wartime. 

In the New York Times for Sunday, Nov- 
ember 29. on the editorial page, appeared an 
article by Joseph H. Willits Director of 
the Social Sciences of the Rockefeller Foun- 
dation. The article consisted chieftly of a re- 
port made by Sir Hector Hethermgton, Vice- 
SlceKr ofthe University of : Glasgow -who 
was brought to America by the Rockefeller 
Foundation to advise on the problem of student 
manpower in the War. Speaking from the 
experiences of Great Britain during the past 
three years, and with a view to the problem 
America now faces. Sir Hector made several 

1 That scarcities of highly trained tech- 
nical, scientific and professional skills devel- 
oped in Great Britain; namely, engineers, 
physicists, doctors, dentists, veterinarians, 
chemists, metallurgists, agriculturists, forest- 
ers, mathematicians, biologists and geologists. 

2 That the British Cabinet decided how 
many students would be needed to overcome 
these scarcities in the years to come, and 

3 That the Ministry of labor and National 
Service in Great Britain chose the men to be 
retained in college or admitted for study in 
the above fields. 

Sir Hector suggested that a program for 
the United States might include the follow- 

, minimum of time and yet that consi- 
deration be given those students who 
can afford to attend classes the year 
roum i because of farm labor or financial 

After seeing the operetta last week, 
we decided that while some of the State 
athletic clubs might not do as well as 
some might hope, we have a team of 
musicians and singers here, absolutely 
subsided, who could play in any league 
at any time. And we ought to be ex- 
tremely proud of them. 

1 A studv of the probable needs of men 
in the above categories, (and others where 
scarcities exist or appear probable.) 

2 Avoidance of the waste of time involved 
in giving these men much military training. 

:5 Allowing Juniors and Seniors now pur- 
suing college studies in these fields and doing 
good work to finish their courses. 

4 Permitting the college administration 
to choose the necessary number to be retained 
from among the Freshmen and Sophomores, 
the others to be made available for military 
■.)!• other necfssnry service. 

5 Keeping the colleges going since the 
British experience has been that even a year 
of general college work has proved benficial 
to men going into military service. He makes 
the very pertinent suggestion that no strain 
should be put on the conscience of college 
men, but they should be instructed to keep 
doing well whatever they are now doing and 
then when the Government needs them they 
will be called. He strongly urged cutting out 
voluntary enlistments, again for the purpose 
of taking the strain off the conscience of our 
young men. 

While in no wise blinking the fact that the 
most essential service is now being rendered 
our nation by those in its various armed 
services, it does appear to the writer tha 
belated recognition is slowly being accorded 
those who also serve in a uniform consisting 
of overalls, a laboratory smock, or just plain 
business clothes. 

In the Springfield Republican for Tuesday. 
December 1, appeared an article by David 
Lawrence. Mr. Lawrence deplores the confu- 
sion in the minds of educators, military 
loaders and the public concerning the place 
->f higher education in an all-out War effort. 
Mr Lawrence is of the opinion that education 
at the college level is now in dire peril and 
that college authorities have been remiss in 
not setting forth in a positive manner the 
part which students in college are now play- 
ing in the all-out, long time effort to win the 
War and the Peace. He depreciates the idea, 
-aid to be in the minds of military leaders. 
, f withdrawing all male students from college.

on four well made records. Shimmi-Sha-

Strain, and Jack Hits the Road are the 

better four. The latter number is sup- 
erior. One good reason for this is the 
fact that in this number Jack Teagar-

plays the blues he's untouchable. An- 
other reason for the latter's superiority 
is Pee Wee Russell's clarinet solo. This 
solo is perhaps the first we've heard 
where Pee Wee doesn't rasp. That alone 
would be enough to make the record 
worth buying.

"No serious student of history can 
doubt that an old epoch in human de- 
velopment has ended and a new one 
begun. In the new epoch that lies ahead 
the United States will share largely, if 
not assume completely, the leadership 
of nations. Her riches, her geographical 
position and her democratic tradition 
are some of the reasons for this ex- 
panded role in international affairs. It 
is almost unthinkable that the provin-l 
cialism of a few isolationists shall ever 
again restrain this nation from the le- 
gitimate assumption of world leader-

of United States isolationism. 

Announce Blackout 
Rules For Cage 

A new air raid notice has been 
issued by Curry S. Hicks in relation 
to the air raids during the basketball 
Karnes in the physical education build- 

1. If an uir raid alarm is sounded 

KEEP YOUR SEATS. You will be 

told whether it is practice alert or a 
raid alarm by the loud speaker. Air 
raid operating personnel will leave at 
this time to go to their stations. 

2. If an actual raid notice la re- 
ceived, it will be immediately an- 
nounced. Remain in your seats until 
it is announced that a raid is more 

;!. If an air raid is imminent: 
a. Students will leave the cage by ex- 
its at north side of eage and go direct- 
ly lo their places of residence, b. Civi- 
lians other than students, go to

surpassed the spring show, "Pirates

Community Chest Is 
Within $100 Of Its Goal 

The Community Chest is $100 short 
of its $2500 goal according to the lat-

on campus in recent years. That new 
pleasing voice combined with a re-

her ■ popular herione. Ray Lynch far 
out topped his last spring' perfor- 
mance showing what a year's voice

only one in the Gilbert and Sulivan

cient number of students wished to 
avail themselves of such an oppor- 
tunity. If a sufficient number was 
not forthcoming, the twelve week sum- 
mer term could be dispensed with. 
la this way, our College would be 
idle for three months out of the year 
instead of for five months as under 
the present arrangement of two sem- 
esters running from October to mid 
May each year, plus a poorly attended 
summer session. It is perhaps a de- 
batable point as to whether students 
can serve the nation best by attending 
school or by working at necessary 
jobs during summers.

the four terms each year, unless they

or in other essential activities, which

be a night game starting at 8 p.m. 
"n the 22nd. however, State has 
anrhviched in a fracus against the

Campbell And Salwak 
Given Memorial Trophies 
For Football Excellence 

Don Campbell and Stanley Salwak 
wen- awarded the Allan Leon I'ond 
Memorial Medal and the William T. 
Evans Memorial Trophy respectively 
at convocation this morning. Tese two 
gridmcn richly deserve these laurels, 
fOff now that the dust has settled on 
the Alumni field, their feats stand 

out above the rest. 

In his Springfield high school daye, 

Don excelled in track; football was 
only a diversion. In 1 1* 10 he played on 
the freshman pigskin outfit at Dart 
mouth, but the Indians never realized 
the full brightness of the little grid- 
man. The next year Don chafed on 
the Maroon and White bench under 
the transfer rule. But 1012 saw all 
his pent up speed and stamina hurst 
forth in a dazzling array of 60-yard 
runs, long kicks, and pay dirt passes. 
Dean Machmer read the following 
statement of the award: "The Allan 
Leon Pond Memorial Medal is award- 
ed each year for general excellent e 
in Football. This medal is in memory 
of Allan Leon Pond of the Class of 
10'JO, who died February 26, 1020. 

"He was a genial companion, a 
devoted lover of his college, a soldier 
in the Great War, a splendid ull-a- 
round athlete and fine exponent of all 
that is best in amateur sport. His 
inspiring and wholesome philosophy 
of life is perpetuated through this 
award which is given this year to: 

Donald A. CampUdl of the Class 
of 1044." 

Stan Salwak is the gift of Orange 
High School. A senior, he has in his 
four years here contributed much t<» 
college activities. Medicine will be his 
profession; for the last two years he 
has been a member of the pre-medical 
dob, All during his college career he 
has been a Dean's list scholar. He || 
also active in the Chemistry club and 
the Newman club. 

But Stan's real forte is athletics. 
He showed promise in his freshman 
year by winning his freshman numer 
als with the frosh gridsters. For his 
fraternity, Sigma Alpha Kpsilon, he 

played mterfrateniity basketball in 
'11 and '42. These same years also 
saw him ...;... ii, v,,,,;,, track f<>i the 
(J reek house. All these feats dwindle 
when matched against his superb car 
ear Ot) the grid. In his sophomore 
year he won his first M; in his junior 
year the spunky backfielder won a- 
nother, and this past season, as < •<> 
captain, be lias taken his third. 

The Evans trophy, a final tribute 
to his skill, was given by the Class of 
1942 in memory of their classmate, 
William T. "Bud" Evans. It is present 
eel each year to that member of the 
football team who through his sport 
manehip and football ability has be I 
exemplified the p erson in whose mem- 
ory is dedicated this trophy.

College To Increase Contribution 
To War Effort, States Dr. Baker 

By Barbara Pullan 

Just what the future of Massachu- 
setts State College is to be is a ques- 
tion of tremendous concern and im- 
portance to everyone connected with 
this college. The elfects of the war 
on the future of the college will be 
both long run and immediate. From 
the long point of view, Dr. Hugh P. 
Baker, president, predicts a great 
future for the college. In the immedi- 
ate future he sees an increased con- 
tribution of the college to the train- 
ing of men for the armed services, 
determined by an army plan which 
may be released soon. 

The future of MSC many years 
alter the war ought to be a great 
one. Dr. Baker believes people will 
turn toward publicly supported ed- 
ucation with an incresing demand for 
it. Institutions supported by the pub- 
lie will grow and public support will 
become a more important factor in 
general education. Our future will, 
in part, be determined by the feeling 
of the kind of college we are and by 
the philosophy of our education pro- 
gram. Since we are a land grant col- 
lege, we are under certain obligations 
to the public. Therefore, service to 
the public in the form of the exten- i 
sion service and the experiment sta- 
tions :ire part of the college functions. 
Increased service to the public along 
with increased support by the public 
should result in a fine future for the 
college, it is believed. 

The immediate future, however, is 
the one which concerns most MSC 
people today. How will the war effect 
us tomorrow, next month, or next 
year*.' The difficulty in answering 
that question lies in the fact that the 
army, as yet, has announced no def- 
inate plans. We may not be called 
upon to do anything more than we 
ere doing now. 

One thing, however, is practically 
certain. The college will not be taken 
over by the army or navy. There 
is no need for them to do it. Army 
plans for the college can be carried 
on under our direction. Then, too, the 
army realizes the need for educated 
men and women, essential in winning 
the war and the peace. The army does, 
however, have the right to demand 
the colleges to prepare men for ef- 
fective war service. 

Since the war is likely to continue 
for two years or more and the army 
will have to be doubled in size, college 
men must be trained as potential 
officer material. Just how and where 
this training is to take place, as yet, 
has not been indicated. 

On the basis of the best information 
available, a plan does seem to be in 
the making. It is believed that a def- 
inate plan as to what the army will 
demand of the colleges may be an- 
nounced before Christmas. In order 
to obtain the greatest number of 
t-ained men in the shortest time pos- 
sible the plan, basically would seem 
to be as follows. The army would take 
all nuaiHfted men and give them three 
mint's basic military training. After 
tV t' ree months the men would be 
reargued to study and obtain spe- 

cialized training in different colleges 
known for their work in special fields. 
Where the three months training 
would be given is unknown. A college 
having an R. O. T. C. unit would 
probably give it on its campus. Other 
colleges might send their men to an 
army camp. The colleges to which the 
men would be reassigned would be 
determined by the special abilities of 
the men and of the colleges. Our col- 
lege therefore would contain two 
groups — the regular students (a cer- 
tain number of women and some men 
not included in the draft program) 
and a specialized training group. 

Whether this plan will actually be 
put into effect by the army is of 
course difficult to say definately. It 
is known almost for a fact however 
that the army will make demands on 
the colleges for trained men, and that 
changes are lekely to occur, even 
though the army does not take over 
the college.

Infirmary Reports Better

Very encouraging is the infirmary- 
report that illnesses so far this year 
show a marked decrease over the 
same period last year. Although epi- 
demics and general increase in sick- 
ness do not usually come until January 
or February, the infirmary staff does 
not think those months will be too 
bad, judging from the records up to 

It is the opinion of Miss Philbin, 
head nurse, that the improvement is 
due to the efforts of the students 
themselves. "Wartime conditions" she 
stated, "seem to have awakened the 
students to the need of better care 
of their health." The staff has noticed 
that many more students than before 
report slight colds, etc. as soon as 
possible, avoiding serious illness.

in Bowker Auditorium. This conceit 
is designed especially to fill that empty 
afternoon preceding the evening's vie

Training ARP Workers 
For First Aid To Start 

Joe Refers, swimming coach and 
first aid instructor, will begin training 
the male ARP first aid personnel on 
Monday, January 4, at 7 P.M. in the 
trymnasium. Assisting him will be stu- 
dent leaders George Kempton and 
Henry Zahner. 

Kempton is a transfer from Spring- 
field College, where he received his 
training in first aid. A junior pre- 
medlal student, he is already well 
known on campus for his coaching 
ability in athletics, including soccer, 
football and skiing. 

His colleague, Zahner, was awarded 
his first aid instructors rating at the 
Red Cross Acf|uatic school in South 
Hanson, Massachusetts. He also holds 
I Red Cross Life Saving Instructors 
certificate, and has had four years ex- 
perience in both first aid and life sav- 

First aid training has received much 
impetus from the current war. It is 

Dr. W. L Holt 
Replaces Dr. Doyle 

A newcomer to the ranks of campus 
faculty, who has already become very 
well known to some of the students, is 
Dr. William L. Holt, who arrived here 
last week replacing Dr. Bernard J. 
Doyle, who left for active duty with 
the Army Air Corps. 

Although Dr. Bolt comes from Ari- 
zona, he is a "Mainiac" from Portland 
as he puts it. For the past five years 
he has spent his winters at Tucson, 
Arizona and his summers in Maine. 
He hasn't seen a snowy winter for six 
years so he is very pleased to see the 
snow again. He had been retired as 
doctor but he has taken up the prac- 
t <• again because of the critical short- 
age. However, during his retirement 
he has been assisting in clinics, there- 
by keeping up with latest practices 
in medicine. 

Dr. Holt was graduated from Har- 
vard and Harvard Medical School in 
1906. He was a college physician 
twenty years ago at the University 
Of Tennessee. He likes the college 
work very much. He has specialized 
in public health work and made it 
his career. 

Dr. Holt gives a very youthful 
impression because of his love for the 
outdoors. He hopes to go hiking and 
enjoys mountain climbing. Astronomy 
is his hobby. He is one of the foremost

According to observations made by 
the Associated PrCM in the State of 
Virginia, there is a potential upheaval 
in American college life coming soon, if 
the proposal of Gov. Colgate W. Darden, 
Jr. becomes nationally accepted. Gov. 
Darden would eliminate fraternity 
houses without eliminating fraternal so- 
cieiit i in all state-RUpported schools and 
has already inaugurated a purge of fra- 
ternities in the state colleges of Virgin- 
ia The College of William and Mary, 
through its board of visitors (trustees), 
has already adopted the proposal as a 

policy "to be put into effect as soon as 

The reasons for the elimination of fra- 
ternities are rather interesting. Gov. 
Darden sees college unity endangered 
rose el th.- f orm a tion of a line of 
cleavage bet wen the fraternity and non- 
lity men. "This line of cleavage. 
artificial and trivial, is harmful." says 
the Governor. 

Fraternities have their good points 
: then- bad points but by far the good 
v ig'n the bad. Originally founded 
for the purpose of fostering fellowship 
and brotherhood, some have become bus- 
inesses which have as their stock in

Waskiewicz Gift From 
University Of Idaho 

l>> Steve (zarnecki 
hi September, a certain student 
transferred from the I niversity of 
Idaho to our college. At first, no one 
bat those who knew him personally 
paid too much attention to him. He 
was just another student as far as any 
one was concerned. But now, after 
three weeks of basketball practice, 
students are beginning to take notice 
of him, and his name inevitably enters 
into every discussion concerning our 
basketball team and its outlook. This 
student transfer is none other than 
St;m Waskiewicz. 

Stan first showed interest in sports 
while attending Amherst High. After 
graduating from high school in 1987, 
he attended Stockbridge for two years, 
where he again was outstanding in 
athletics. Upon completion of the 2 
I course at Stockbridge, Stan sud- 
denly got a strong desire to further 
his education. So in the fall of 1940,

Wi.ile at Idaho, Waskiewicz not only 
played basketball, but was also a mem- 
of the football team, lkcause he 
I'd to attend some school which 
closer to his home, he enrolled at 
this college last September. 

Whi'n asked how State compared to 

Idaho, Stan stated that there was not 

any great difference. He did, however, 

a. that students at the University of 

Idaho had ■ l"t more voice in the 

« ming of the school. About the 

lent* the in: "'\es, he had this to 

say, "The students out West are a lot 

ftociabie, and they possess a 

<»| spirit which il rarely found in 

any of our New England schools." 

Despite the fact that Stan is a big 

standing about six feet in height 

weighing close to the 200 pound 

k, he is very fast and graceful on 

basketball floor. After watching 

during practice sessions, there is 

d .n!it in our minds, that he will 

m down one of the starting posi-

ibilitj that Stan will he out there

As Hall Sets New England Marks 

Coach Joe Roger's mermen tucked 
their first victory of the season away 
last Tuesday afternoon as they splash- 
ed to a lopsided 57-18 victory over an 
outclassed Worcester Tech squad in 
the opening meet of the season.

Westover Game This 
Tuesday Night At 8 

The State bombadiers will be after 
their second target this Tuesday night 
when they engage the invading West- 
over Birdmen at the eage. 

State will probably start tha same 
line as in the opener against Clark. 
Not a great deal is known about the 
potentialities of the Fliers as the line- 
ups are constantly shifting and as the 
players are shifted to different parts 
of the country. However, these set 
vice teams usually boast of some pret- 
ty fair material in the form of former 
high school, semi-pro, and college 
players and Westover will In- n«, ex- 

I!ut getting back to the State camp, 
Tad Bokina should again take the 
floor at the opening whistle assisted 
by Waskiewicz, Kelly, Maloy and Po- 
dolak. This is only a tentative lineup 
i.nd is by no means definite but these 
veterans should bear the brunt of 
duties. Kneeland is another classy ball- 
handler who should see plenty of ac- 
tion on Tuesday night. Coach llarge- 
sheimer is expecting a Christmas gift 
this Tuesday night in the form of a 
win. May he net be disappointed.

start by smashing the existing 60 
yard freestyle record in 20.2 seconds 
and then blasting his way to a bril- 
liant 52.4 second record in the 100 
yard freestyle. Captain George Tilley 
then tied the Tech pool record in the 
150 yard backstroke in a very fast 
1 BUR., 44.2 set . 

All in all, the Statesmen had an af- 
ternoon for themselves as they won 
eight out ofnineeventsand took second 
berths in four. Tilley, Ransow, and 
Hayes had no trouble in taking over 
the medley; La Gars and Max Nied- 
jela monopolized the 220 yard free- 
style in first and second spots re- 
spectively; Hall, of course, set re- 
cords in both the »*»(» and 100 yard 
freestyle; Bob Schiller was tops on the 
springboard; Captain Tilley took the 
150 yard backstroke in record time. 
Bill Manchester was barely nosed out 
by Russell of Tech in the 200 yard 
breaststroke. I,u Care topped off an- 
other in the 140 yard freestyle with 
"IVmitasse" Coffey a close second and 
finally, in the inn yard relay, "Demi- 
tasse" teamed up with Bob Monroe, 
Max N'iedjela and Kith Hayes to take 
event \i-ry handily. 

The squad's next encounter is 
against Williams on January 0th. In j 
this meet, the going will be a little 
tougher but state should nevertheless 
make a good showing for itself.

With breath-taking skill Tad Bokina 
led the Maroon and White basketball 
quintet to a 49-86 victory over Clark 
University in the initial game of the 
season for the Statesmen in Curry 
i licks gymnasium. The Red Raiders 
out for revenge after last year's set- 
hick at the Haystaters' hands put up 
a good scrap harrying State guards 
Eddie Podolak and Dick Maloy con- 

The first half saw plenty of action 
as both teams felt each other out. 
Hay State beat her rivals to the punch 
however and early in the scrap began 
salting the game away. Tom Kelly 
and Capt. Bokina did some nifty cut- 
ting to hoop up 28 points and start 
the score snowballing. Most of the 
shooting was done close underneath 
the basket by Bokina as he capitalized 
SB his height. The Red Raiders ran up 
nine points of their score in this time. 

With fierce determination the Clark 
hoopsters counter-attacked in the sec- 
ond half. Long shots, short shots, du- 
elled under the Baystaters basket and 
tricky r e ve rs es kept the State boys 
busy. In the middle of the half, how- 
ever, the attack faded out, when stal- 

wart Bokina, Kelly, Waskiewicz again 
entered the fray. 

Bokina turned in a bit of light foot 
ed playing to boost his individual tally 
to 10. Tom Kelly was close on his 
heels as he turned in 19 counters in an 
outstanding piece of basketball. Third 
high scorer was freshman Waskiewicz 
with (», followed by Ed. Podolak and 
Kneeland each with five. Dick Maloy 
tallied .1 while Andy Nelson sank a 
foul shot. Podolak, veteran player, held 
down the righ guard berth unaided. 

The last minutes were rather anti- 
climactic as both teams were well 
spent after the struggle. As the last 
gun fired the State fans let out a cheer 
for their victorious quintet which we 
hope, will echo down the season. Coach 
Hargersheeimer's charges acquitted 
themselves well in the first engage- 
ment of the year.

A Christmas Thought --- 1942 

This Christmas 1942 is different than any Christmas in our history. All 
over the World, men are killing and being killed in seemingly direct defiance 
to the spirit to which Christmas is dedicated. As it affects Americans, it 
means that among the many sacrifices which we must make is that of enjoy 
ing athletic competition-perhaps for the duration. For certainly, regular 
athletic schedules are certain to be seriously curtailed in the near future. 

And this Is one of the things American boys are now fighting to protect 
in Africa, in China, in (aiadalcanal. American boys are fighting this Christmas 
so that on Christmas's to come, other Americans will be able to enjoy a 
rightful heritage .competitive athletics when, where, and how they choose 

So on this Christmas, let us reaffirm our faith in our American ideals; let 
us remember that peace on earth may be had only by www of good will: let 
us, therefore, give no peace to those who have good will toward no one; let 
us resolve to blast the enemy to Hell or die in the attempt!

The time has come for all good 
Statesmen to come to the aid of their 
party — said party being the Military 
Ball of Friday eve. In the past, the 
Ball has had little need of aid, always 
being well attended by those sharp 
new uniforms which accomplish the 
most marvelous transformations upon 
the yard birds of yore. Nor this year 
does it need aid in the form of gen- 
eral patronage. What it does want is 
support in the sale of defense stamp 
corsages. The orchid is strictly old 
time — the Minute Man daisy is the 
newest in the field. So step right up, 
all you Statesmen, end take your pick 
which reminds us. we have two 
roommates who arc potential (and

Just one week ago, Fran Riel, cagy 
mentor of the Bay State fly chasers, 
became the father of a bouncing baby 
boy. The newiy arrived hurler, sched- 
uled to make his big league debut in 
the spring of 1964, is already exhibit- 
ing a good fast bawl. Physicians say 
that Fran is doing well, and there is 
every reason to believe he will recover. 
Young Brian's mother, the former Kay 
Kerivan, also deserves honorable men- 

Working on a biologically lower, but 
numerically larger scale, Duchess of 
Sig Ep, presented Papa Cianarokos 
and Co. with eight puppies of Eng- 
lish Setter descent. Duchess herself 
admitted that she had anticipated 
more, but that the current shortage 
of storks, due to wartime priorities, 
limited the number to that which could 
be delivered in one load. 

( )ne of the funniest things we have 
heard in a lorn; t ; me is the true story 
about the fellow who, only 1 st week. 
i. hi down toe siuiis and dove into the 
swimming pool, clad in his epidermis. 
The real hilarity came when he broke 
surface to find the pool already inhab- 

eried with great might:

good night!"

dry other things, but dropping the

we got (|uite a kick out of the exhibi-

be less embarrassed if we were to drop 
the whole matter. 

This is the week of the Military

freshman turns up in his uniform. 
That enterprising genius, Charlie Lim-

to the drill hall. This promises a splen-

Everybody around here seems to be

Dads' Day Committee Extends Message 
Through Pamphlets Mailed To Homes 

I. F. Skits Cancelled 

Ted Shepardson, Sigma Alpha 
Kpsilon, chairman of the Inter- 
fraternity Skit committee, an- 
nounced that the skits have been 
definitely cancelled. The reason 
for the cancellation was based on 
the concentrated program of 
studying and the war effort which 
might be hindered by the per- 
formance of these skits. 

Because Dad's Day has been called 
otf this year the Senate in coopera- 
tion with the Dad's Day committee 
and Mr. George Emery, secretary of 
the SSSOCiste alumni, has sent a Mass 
State Leaflet to all the fathers of the 
students. This leaflet is "to tell brief- 
ly, of campus and classroom activity 
as effected by war conditions." The 
usual Dad's Day was cancelled be- 
cause of the transportation difficul- 
ties; therefore, the leaflet is sent to 
tell the fathers as much as possible 
about the campus at present. 

Greetings from President 
On the inside of the pamphlet, is 
a greeting to the fathers from Presi- 
dent Baker. Also there are messages 
to the "Dads" from the committee, 
Dean Machmer and Register Lan- 
phear. At the close of the Dean's mes- 
sage he ways "Today's demands are 
a challenge to our youth; and it is 
certain that Massachusetts State stu- 
dents will not be found wanting."

The response by the audience to the 
Christmas concert presented by the 
band under the direction of Doric Al- 
viani is one of the few rewards which 
participants in such activities receive. 
It was truly gratifying to see the band 
called back for encore after encore. 

No small measure of credit goes to 
the member of that organization and 
to their director, Doric Alviani for such 
a splendid performance. 


This morning at convocation, Colonel 
Young pointed out the true status of 
the men in the enlisted reserve and in 
the ROTC. For quite some time now 
rumors have been circulating in regard 
to the status of these men with the re- 
sult that many believed all reserves 
were to be called to active duty just 
as soon as the semester ended. 

Leading magazines such as "News- 
week" printed material supplied to 
them by the Office of War Information 
which indicated that all members of 
the ERC would be called up for imme- 
diate active service and probably sent 
to other colleges for further training. 
These releases were poorly worded 
ami created nothing but confusion in 
the minds of those who read them. 
Thev did nothing but create confusion 
^»n this campus and it is time that some- 
thing were done on this campus to stop 
t v " circulation of rumors. 

The president of the University of 
Oklahoma hopes to have solved the ru- 
mor problem on the Oklahoma campus 
wi+h the formation of a rumor clinic 
wfco«e job is to track down and eval- 
uate rumors.

ttonsible student authority to form

Dear Sir, 

We've been hearing a lot recently about 
studying hard as our bit toward winning the 
war. The college schedule has been acceler- 
ated find a summer session inaugurated. That's 
all very nice, but I think we might as well 
ffiCfl the tact that most of us will soon be 
putting considerably more into the war effort 
than studying. 

In view of the fact that most of the men 
students are undoubtedly going into the army 
soon, why must we continue to take such 
unnecessary courses as "Fats", ec, psych, and 
publk speaking? Alter all there are few 
lapancses or GermfiB soldiers who will refrain 
from shooting a man just because he knows 
iambic pentameter from troth file hexameter, 
or because he W«* taught in economics that 
the concerns making his equipment are all 
law-breaking combine* heeded by uneerupu 
! .us self-seeking capitalists ,or beeeuM be

I nemy or anyone on this side of the front 


I can see thai 'here might be some sense in 
requiring fie, psych, Pats and public speaking 
during peace time, but Ithink that we should 
he allowed to concentrate now on such 
M math and military that, will really do us 
some good. Therefore I suggest that these 
unessential courses be discontinued for the 
present time and that more practical courses 
he substituted in their place.

When the citizens of Topeka voted 
recently to make Washburn college a 
municipal university, they began a new 
chapter in the history of a school 
founded 75 years ago at the close of the 
Civil war. 

Washburn is not only one of the old- 
est schools in Kansas but it is the last 
of Congregational origin. During all its 
76 years it has existed through the 
generosity of philanthropists and alum- 
ni, and now the city of Topeka is taking 
Washburn under its wing just when the 
school has reached the end of its en- 

Washburn, first known as Lincoln 

I college, now bears the name of one of 
its earlier benefactors, Ichabod Wash- 
burn, whose timely donation made it 

I possible for the college to survive the 

j lean years following the Civil war. 
In 1003 a philanthropist gave Wash- 

I burn college a $60,000 observatory, 
equipped with one of the best telescopes 
in the country at the time. 

But the gift that Dr. P. P. Womer, 
president of Washburn from 1915 to 
1981, likes to tell about the $100,000 
that created the department of Ameri- 
can citizenship, believed to be the first 
of its kind in the United States. Dr. 
Worrier's story began many years ago 
while he was visiting in the east. 

It was a stormy night, and he 
sought refuge in a strange house. It 
wasnt' long before Dr. Womer and the 
man of the house were fast friends. 
Both were highly interested in educa- 
tion, and both were concerned over the 
eflecl the World war and the social 
upheaval which followed would have on 
American citizenship. 

The outcome of Dr. Womer's chance 
conversation was an outright gift by 
his new friend of $100,000 for the 
founding of the American citizenship 
d -partment at Washburn college. The 
donor requested that his name be with- 
held until his death So it wasn't until

Hand in hand with the steady growth 
of the College, there has come a marked 
expansion in physical equipment as we 
now have one football, two soccer balls, 
eight baseball bats, and one chesslward. 
The original farm of 1867, with its run- 
down fields and degenerated apple or- 
chards cut up here and there by old 
Virginia rail fences and hedge rows 
and now by reveling students, has met- 
amorphosed into one of the most at- 
tractive college campuses in New Eng- 
land. A brief statement of land, build- 
ings, and equipment will show to what 
extent th- original four wooden build- 
ings have been out-grown.

Churchill's Bulldogs, Stalin's Bears and

It was so cold Christmas eve, with

lory, while we were warm for the fir 
time in months.

is where basketball was invented. How-

own, including the Kelly, a completely 
liquid cooled machine gun which will not 
Dver heat no matter how many times v 
shoots; Sticky Ed Podolak, the humanl 
fly paper who not even a hula dancer 
could shake off; and Tad Bokina whol

his feet touch the ground. All thi>

We thought it might be well to men-i

and he conveyed to us the happy news 
that at a popularity contest held at th. 
camp where he is stationed, he, the 
pride of Lawrence and MSC, was voted 
"Most Likely to l>e Courtmartialed." 

The Peanut Gallery wishes to thank 
all the hundreds of charming peopk

hope that everybody liked the ones we 
mailed to every student enrolled at the

to receive one, it is probably because 
we thought you had flunked out or 
been drafted. Mistakes like that wi

Able Bodied Men 
Will Go Into Army 

According to information disclosed 
by Professor Glatfeltcr. collect' place- 
ment director, all except a few of the 
men graduating from State in Jan- 
uary and May will be taken in by 
the armed forces. The small number 
of male graduates who will be ex- 
empted will include only those highly 
skilled in physics, mathematics, en- 
gineering and other essential scien- 
tific fields. Although there is an in- 
creasing demand for war workers, it 
is going to be filled primarily by per- 
sons not subject to military service. 

At the present time the trend in 
industry is t* train older men find 
women workers to replace young men 
entering the armed forces. Under this 
program many former "white-collar" 
workers above army ajrc limits and 
feminine employees are being trained 
to do specia'ized tasks. Since factoiis 
now employ a large number of wo- 
men, sometimes as much as SO'; of 
the entire plant personnel. Miss Ham- 
lin, the placement officer for women, 
has received many inquiries concern- 
ing this source of labor at Massa- 
chusetts State College. 

Men who are exempt from military 
service will have eoantleu oppor- 
tunities for work on the production 
end of industry, where they can con- 
tribute much to the war effort.

rcc immended by the War Department 
and the administration of the college 
that every student make a greater 
effort to concentrate on his education 
in order that he may be better quali- 
fied to serve when called to duty. 

This program is part of an organ- 
ized educational setup by which the 
War Department selects prospective 
leaders and officers to fill vacancies 
created in various branches of the 
army. There are similar allowances 
in other branches of the service, 
thereby giving the same opportunity 
to those who are qualified for the 
Navy, Air Corps, Coast Guard, or 
Marine Corps. 


Within the next few weeks new 
members of the Statesmen and the

of continuous music on the stage. 
Prom the opening number on, the 
musical groups will break into one

Then' will be sections by the individ-

Giant Puff Ball In State Museum 
4000 Times Larger Than Ordinary One 

Practical Democracy In 
Need Here-Dr Lutge 

Campus Camera 



This unusual giant puff ball owned 
by Professor A. Vincent Osmurj is 
on campus in the hut any museum. 
It measure! approximately 15x12x18 
inches. This la about 4,000 times as 
large as the ordinary putr ball, and 
the number of iporea contained in it 
is equal to the number of miles there 




would be fourteen times to the sun 
and back, or 1,830,000,000 miles. If 
this amasing puff ball were eut up 
and used as the usual garnish for 

Bteak, it would serve about b ! <l people, 
i i pull hall was grown on the Clark 
Estate and was found 20 years ago. 
It, weighs something just under a 
pound. The puff ball is on exhibition 
all the time at the botany museum 
e students can see it. 

"More democracy in the class 

room" is the wish of Professor H. 
Carl Lutge, the German professor 

who has recently joined the teaching 
staif of the college. He feels that the 
student-faculty re ations at tiie Col- 
lege are rather distant compared to 

the attitudes which he has been used 

to at other colleges where he has 

taught. At Rutgers and New York 

State Teachers' College he was used 

to h wing the students go to him and 

criticise the method of presenting a 

subject if there was need. 

He thinks that a system of closer 
cooperation could be worked out on 

this campus. 

Although the students net some 
chance to meet the faculty members 
and their wives at the fraternity and 
sorority houses, he believes that the 
Btudents should have more chances 
to go to faculty bonus and visit, lie 
believes that if the students would 
Frequently go to the faculty homes 
they would get more actual value 
from the classroom.

Blood Donor Quota 
Not Yet Reached 

The lists of students who have 
signed up for blood donation will be 
collected from the sororities, dorms 
and fraternity houses Friday. The 
quota of lL'5 donations has not been 
reached yet, hence the Student Wat 
Council takes this opportunity to ask 
for more donations before this Fri- 
day. Unless at least 126 students a- 
gree to donate some of their blood, 
it is probable that the Red Cross will 
not visit the campus. 

No word has been heard as yet 
from the district manager of the Bos- 
ton and Maine Railroad, in respect 
to the Emergency Work Corps. Tin 
general plans of the Student War 
Council are to get the use of the 

Chape] bell to inform the students 
when they are needed, and to appoint 
an agent for every one or two f rat - 
entity houses, the duty of the agents 
being to get enough fellows together 
to deal with the emergency work that 
.rises. Shoveling snow after heavy 
bllsxarda will probably be the most 
important work to be taken care of.

Must Examine Bulletin Board 

Students are expected to examine 
the bulletin board in the Hick's 
Physical .Education Building in order 
to learn the type of program for a 
particular day and the uniform re- 
quired, and to check demerits. 

As many students as possible are 
urged to supply their own uniforms 
which may consist of basketball or 
track suits and rubber soled shoes. 

Students who over-cut the phy- 
seal fitness work of the first semes- 
ter will have a certain amount de- 
ducted from their mark. If the stu- 
dent had four or less cuts, his start- 
ing mark will be 100. If he had five 
cuts, his mark will be 90; six cuts,

\ THE 1 




by Bob Iturke 


We've preached before about win- 
ning teams and how they help give a 
school a good name. And again we 
preach, although along slightly differ- 
ent lines. 

It is obvious that winning teams 
must have good athletes. It is also 
true that good athletes are born but 
that they must stay in condition to be 
good. It is about this that we speak. 

We have learned that a well-known 
athlete here at State has, of late, 
taken a fancy for Lady Liquor ala 
Grandonico. This, to us, is an indica- 
i ion that said athlete doesn't care 
either about the lean or himself and 
is blasting his own chances to become 
ly gnat. Understand we are not 
crusading for the W.C.T.U. for w. 
heartily approve the right of any man 
to tipple when he so desires. But 
when that tippling results in degrad- 
ing a man's physical abilities, it Is 
time to stop especially when that 
nan is an athlete. The pity is that 
ouch an athlete is not only hurting 
huuself but is hurting his teammates 
and the school as well. So to this 
athlete we say, "Take it easy — you're 
I ii good tfl start the playboy a. t 
now!" May a word to the wise suffice! 


State Stars On The Polished Surface 

Hargymen Tangle With Springfield 
Tonight At Technical Gymnasium 

Mermen Meet Williams 
In First Home Meet 

The State mermen take on a re- 
putedly potent Williams squad this 
Saturday afternoon at 2 p. m. in 
White "mb pool. Coach Joe Rogers, 
who has been laid up with an attack 
of "Old Man Appendix," is expected 
to return home tomorrow and there 
is a possibility that he might be on 
deck, even though a little wobbly, to 
resume command of his slippery crew. 

After annexing their first victory 
over a weaker Worcester Tech squad 
last month, the mermen will be out 
to boost the record to two wins in 
the face of decidedly stiffer opposi- 
tion. Last year, State nosed out a fav- 
ored Williams squad and may repeat 
in this meet. 

The State lineup should be some- 
thing like this: the 300 yard medley 
will probably find Tilley, Ransow and 
Hayes teaming up for that event. 
Lu Gare and Max Niedjela are good 
bets for the 220 yard freestyle while 
"Demitasse" Coffey might also help 
out in this slot. 

Bud Hall should have little trouble 
with his 60 and 100 yard freestyles 
and will probably be paced by War- 
ren Anderson. Bob Schiller and Jack 
Coughlin will do the honors for State 
in diving. 

Captain George Tilley is a pretty 
safe bet to take the 150 yard back- 
stroke after tieing the pool record 
at Worcester in the last meet. Bill 
Manchester and Carl Ransow should 
bear the brunt of the duties in the 
200 yard breaststroke. 

Lu Gare and "Demitasse" Coffey 
will po into their act when 440 time 
rolls 'round and the afternoon's fes- 
tivities should end when the afore 
mentioned beverage, aided and abet- 
ted by Bob Munroe, Kirb Hayes and 
Max Niedjela, splashes through the 
540 yard relay. 

Williams promises to make the 
afternoon a warm one for the States- 
men despite the water — so come one, 
™me all! 

Ed Podolak and Tad Bokina (above) Dick Maloy and Tom Kelly (below) are 
four senior veterans who are sparking State's court drives this season.

The Baystate hoopsters travel to 
Williamstown to tussle with the 
purple Ephmen in the fourth encoun- 
ter of the season next Wednesday, 
the thirteenth. The invading Hargy- 
men, captained by dead-eye Tad Bo- 
kina, will be out for a repeat of last 
[year's victory in an effort to keep un- 
broken this winter's string of tri- 

Besides Bokina, other boys who are 
'ooping it in for the Maroon and 
White with notable success are Tom 
Kelly at right forward, second high 
scorer in the Clark opener, and the 
righting freshman Steve Waskiewicz 
in the left forward berth. Eddy Podo- 
lak, last year's winner of the trophy 
for outstanding contribution to the 
hoopsters, this year continues in the 
right guard berth. His teammate, 
veteran Dick Maloy, is doing more 
than his share at left guard. 

Art Irzyk, well-known to State 
sport fans as a star second baseman. 
is chalking them up at left forward, 
while Buckley and Davis are doing 
the same at right. Ereshman Eddy 
Med rath, sophomore Andy Nelson, 
and freshman Brown are spelling ace 
Bokina at centpr. Ray Kneeland, jun- 
ior transfer, is showing up well at 
left guard. 

The Williams quintet, brainchild of 
coach Dale Burnett, has shown abili- 
ty to rally and pull out of tight places 
in its early season tilts. In their open- 
er with Arnold College, they came 
from behind in the last ten minutes 
of play to nose their rivals 41-40. 

Captain Barter at right forward was 
largely responsible for the rally. 

The Ephmen were in turn edged 
out by Vermont in their next hoop 
duel by a bare 38-36 score; Undaunt- 
ed, however, they retaliated the next 
week by overcoming Wesleyan in the 
last five minutes, 41-52. It is clear

On December 22nd, the Weatover

that the greatly outclassed service 
team was sadly lacking in training 
and reserve power as the Maroon and 
White seemed to throw everything 
through the hoop but the Westover 
coach. Both Dick Maloy and Tad Bo- 
kina broke into double figures for the 
evening. All in all, however, it was 
rather a drab affair as State grabbed 
the lead early in the opening period 
and lead the Elyers all the way home. 

The llargy hoopsters journey south 
this evening to tangle with a menac 
ing Springfield college quintet. The 
baystater's warwhoop will be loud 
and lusty as they hit the war path in 
an effort to quell their ancient rivals. 
In the past eight seasons, the Staters 
have been trounced by the city com- 
bine. Their first taste of defeat last 
rear came when the Springfield out- 
lit walloped them 51-40. It is with an 
old score to settle, then, that the 
Statesmen travel southward. 

In the lull before the storm, the 
Maroon and White hasketeers have 

been perfecting their hoop accuracy 
and team play. Coach Eiargersheimer 
realizes that only top notch playing 
can hope to capture the victory lau-

Pres. Baker Extends

Through the Collegian, President

hotter WSJ of living follows; 

"In this time of war when all of u.- 
aro deeply concerned with the kirn

college family; therefore, with a 
feeding of humhleness and of good- 
will, 1 am happy to extend cordial 
greetings to every mem her of oui 
college family for this year of 194.'i 
This year should he the greatest one 
in the history of the Nation. We

giving we shall become more con 
scious than ever before of the good

We are fortunate indeed to 
be here on this Campus as u

advantage and our obligations are 
many. We have all been striving to 
make our college life, our college

We believe that our colleges and uni- 
versities are essentia] to the winning 
of the war. We are conscious of the 
great in portance of our doing the

Carnival Plans 

Sabbie Lewis To Play For 
Ball; Sports, Sculpture To 
Be Held As Usual 

Tentative plans for the Winter 
Csmivsl were announced today by 
Frederick II. Burr '48, chairman of 
the Csmivsl Committee. The Car- 
nival, will as usual be centered about 
the Winter Carnival Ball which will 
feature the selection and coronation 
of the IMS Carnival Queen. 

Sports events and snow sculpturing 
by the fraternities will also be a part 
rtf the activities of the weekend which 
will cume on January fS and ::o. 

Babble Lewis and his band will 
furnish the music for the Carnival 
Ball, according to an announcement 
made here by Edward M. Podolsk '4.S 
of Kasthampton. 

War conditions make it impossible 
to have skiing and tobogganing on 
Bull Hill as in years past. Skiing, 
however, will be held on the new ski 
hill in back of Thatcher Hall and the 

Many couples will probably walk to 
the Ball as an OPA reply in answer 
to a question asked by the CoUegisn 
came back saying, in part, "While the 
OPA cannot committ itself on an- 
swers to questions of individuals re- 
lative to the gasoline situation in New 
England, you are (|uite correct in as- 
suming that there is little likelyhood 
of more gasoline sowing into New 
England in the immediate future." 

This, plus the new ban on pleasure 
driving, will mean that quite ■ few 
couples will attend the Ball on foot. 

In addition to the Carnival Ball 
there will be a ski boot dance on Sat- 
urday afternoon and rk parties fol- 
lowing the basketball game in the 
• lust before the ski boot dance on 
Sat'j day afternoon, a swimming ex- 
hibition will be held under the direc- 
tion of Jo.- Rogers in the pool. 

The general committee in charge of 
the Winter Carnival consists of Fred- 
erick H. Burr '43, chairman; Edwin 
Pedes' '11, rice chairman; Ward 
inon '1."), vice-chairman; Engene 
M. Wein '43, treasurer; Shirley .Mae- 
son. '44 secretary; Edward Podolak,

Adminstration Of President Baker 

By Alma Howe 

1943 will mark the tenth anniver- 
sary of I>r. Hugh P. Baker's adminis- 
tration at Massachusetts State Col- 

On October o, IMS, president Baler 
was Inaugurated as the Ilth president 
of Massachusetts State. The frrfSSSJon 
was attended by Governor Joseph B. 
Ely, and college presidents from all 
over the country. 

A. B. Degree Granted 

Since then, many c hang es have tak- 
en place at Massachusetts State. New 
dorms have been built, an A. B. de- 
cree has been fought for and won, 
and each year, Massachusetts State's 
enrollment has steadily increased. 
\nd now, the war has also made its 
changes on our campus. President 
Baker has taken an active part in 
tffeeting many of these changes, and 
it is portly due to him that hfssss 

Federal Tax Levied 
On Athletic Tickets 

The federal internal revenue office 
has ruled that after the close of thi.s 
semester, student athletic ticket ad- 
missions to fames are subject to tax 
f the public is ch a rged admission. 
This tax is therefore effective on all 
'rames where an admission is Charged 

beginning on January J;>, 1948. 

The first game affected is the has- ; 
ketball game with Amherst College at 
Amherst College on Thursday eve- 
ning, January 88, 

All students planning to attend thi.s 
same must purchase a 5-cent tax tic- 
et at the MSC physical education 
• trice before going to the game, and 
present this tax ticket with their stu- 
!cnt ticket for admission. These tax 
tickets will not be on sale at the 
\irherst g ymna sium. Students fail- 
ing to get their tix ticket here will 
have to pay the full admission price 
of 55 cents. 

Tax tickets are now on sale at the 
physical education office. 

chusetts State has progressed so far 
in the last ten years. 

The day before President Baker's 

inauguration, Governor Kly approved 

a bill from the legislature for a new 

en's dormitory and a new library at 

Massachusetts State. These buildings 

were part of the NBA program, and 

Were to be built partly with govern- 
ment funds amounting to a quarter 
of a million dollar.-. 

In late January. 1934, the Board oi 
Trustee named the new buildings. The 
men's dorm was named after former- 
president l>r. Roscoe Thatcher; and

\Anne Brown Presented Striking 
\Recital At Social Union Friday 

By Barbara I'ullan 
Impressed by the charming voice, 
manner, an<l appearance of one of the 
t popular American concert pcr- 

formers, an enthusiastic audience re- 
peived with great delight the concert 
presented by Anne Brown in last Fri- 

Isy night's Social Union program. 
Miss Brown, even before she began 

" sing, had won the approval of the 

[audience. Dressed in a distinctive 

looking maroon colored velvet gown, 

harmonising with the stage hangings 

»tid curtains and enhancing her own 

natural beauty, she presented a most 

delightful and attractive appearance. 

Her quiet poise and gracious manner 

IS she waited for the audience to be- 

Bome quiet, was also impressive. Then 

^he turned her head toward her ac- 

pompanist, nodded her readiness to 

wgin, and started the first song of her 


Evan from the first notes of the 

song, Allelujah (a 17th century 

k.vmn) the fine quality of her voice 

rss evident. As the program pro- 

"•ssed, everyone was amazed at the 
p«e with which she sang and at the 
rrength and beauty of her voice. The 

use she made of her hands, and her 
facial expressions which changed as 
the mood of the songs varied also 
caused much favorable comment. 

Following the first group of Eng- 
lish and Cerman songs Miss Brown 
sang a group of American and 
French influenced Creole songs of 
Louisiana. After a brief intermission 
the program continued with four sim- 
ple but pleasing short American 
songs. The songs of the last quarter 
of the program were negro spirituals 
and two of the hit songs from "Porgy 
and Bess". The audience enjoyed 
Anne Brown's singing of "Summer- 
time" so much that she graciously 
repeated this number. At the end 
of the program the enthusiasm of the 
audience was displayed by the ap- 
plause to such an extent that Miss 
Brown generously presented two en- 
cores, which were very much enjoyed. 
On the whole, Anne Brown's ap- 
pearance last Friday night may well 
be considered a delightful occasion. 
Miss Brown was very well received 
by an appreciative audience which 
definetely liked her for her lovely 
voice and for her personal charm.

It is considered the prhristfS <* » ietin "f 

Jtor to take a parting shot at the world 

It is with th, intention that perhaps some of 

be shots hred herein may he eons,, lered 

!„«. ,stions for improvement that this editor- 

, '' 1 , 1 '.,v au' n four things on campus which are 
ed ol revision or attention. These things 

!. t . „ot the result of the thought ot a single 
;;,,n but represent the attitudes a nn.ber 
S both students and faculty members. 

First is the question of the position of the 
Student Senate on campus. By haymg such 
„ Lly we are assuming that democratic 
student gOT-nm-t has a definite p lace m 
the college. Yet the Student £««* <«* 
is the opinion of several members of that 
Llv> has Z, Uttta in th, way powers 
and duties. The Student Senate should be the 
Agency to represent the student body when 
ever and wherever such representation is 

•quired. Yet events h,ve shown that the 
Senate has rarely been called upon OT EEC- 

^presentation and that "student opinion has 

l„ rK ,.y been what Interested lobbybt. have 

The second thing is the consolidation ol cam- 
pa. elections. All elections could and should 
1,. ,, 1(1 at the same time. Class officers, 
senators, WSGA'S, Maroon Key men com- 
mittees, and others should all be elected at 
the same time. This would mean a readjust- 
ment of the terms of office hut at the same 
time it would tend to make democracy on this 
C k pua workable and perhaps eliminate the 
^difference which BO* characterises campus 

el t uns. . 

, ■ third thing is a revision of the athletic 
,,,r v of the college True, there is a war 
Coin on and all the changes that might be 
,". ., a we cannot be effected. At the same 
tin we .an be laying the ground work for 
the post war period. Greatest need here ii 
, ten ive system of financial assistance 
|' () athletes who need the money and who 
can otherwise qualify as students. At insignia 
c . a t, -,„ coaches Of all fall sports get up 
■id "We are not apologising hut . . . ," 
No need to say more, the records did that. 
And so it is indeed gratifying to see the bas- 
ketball team come through the way it has. 
■t'i and most vital at the moment is a 
more substantial contribution to the war effort. 
T is -an best be done by [.lacing the college 
on a full year basis instead of running another 
poor summer school session. Required courses

With not too many apologies to Kipling 
we offer: 
Greasy Grind 
i You may talk of books and paper from 
the Math Building to Draper, 
And of grinding all the day and night- 
time long; 
But compared to guys like Greasy, all 

the work you have is easy, 
And life is just a picnic and a song. 
New in Mass State's sunny clime, where 

I used to spend my time, 
Playing with the deaf and dumb and 

blind ; 
Of all that screwy crew, the screwiest 

I knew 

\V;is that conscientious fellow Greasy 

It was grind, grind, look out or you 

you will fall a page behind. 
There's no time to take a bath 'cause 

you have to do the Math, 
So grab the little Mum jar. Greasy 

The kind of clothes he'll wear he doesn't 

know or care, 
For he hasn't time to bother how he 

While we sit all day somewhere, in a 

College Store chair, 
Gossiping and trading bits of dirt. 
He goes running to Goodell, like a bat 

i ight out of H--1, 
For fear his 90 average will be hurt. 
Sd it's grind, grind, grind. Oh, grind 
your little eyes out till you're blind; 
You must get a 96, or for goodness 

sakes alive, 
You won't make the first Dean's list, 

Greasy Grind. 
And I shan't forget the day when my 

memory gave way 
In a course in which I had a big exam ; 
I'd bean up the night before, but the 

course was such a bore, 
I'd been up for other reasons than to 

S I crsmed my neck around, from ceil- 
ing to the ground, 
To see what kind of comfort 1 could 

find : 
And sitting at my right. (), SO glourious 

a sight, 
Was that gushing stream of knowledge. 

Greasy Grind. 

It was Grind. Grind, Grind, be pitiful, 
be merciful, be kind, 

If you're not adirty skunk you just 
couldn't let me flunk, 

O, lei me see your paper, Greasy Grind. 

Well he moved his arm an inch, and to 
copy was a cinch, 

For his writing was so legible to see ; 

And I got an 84, and couldn't have got- 
ten more, 

But the prof would then have known it 

wasn't me. 

So we'll meet him later on, when we all 

are dead and gone, 
And we'll find he's still improving on 

his mind. 
He'll be grinding on the coals with the 

other poor lost souls, 
And we'll past a quiz in hell with Givu- 

v Gind. 
It was grind, grind, grind, although our 

language may not be refined, 
Though we laughed at you and flayed 
you, by the living God that made you, 
You're a better man than we are, Grea- 
sy Grind.

Mathias Voices Position 

Of Liberal Arts In Post 
War World Reconstruction 

January 10, 1U4:* 
To th« Editor of the Collegian:— 

1 would like to answer the letter published 
in your column on January 7, 1943 concerning 
the teaching of unnecessary courses. 

The author of the rather bombastic article 
complains that many courses are unnecessary 
in view ot tiie fact that most students will be 
in active service soon. I grant that there are 
courses given here and in many colleges which 
are superfluous. But this does not justify a 
straight condemnation of all subjects which 
train the lightlytaxed mind of an upperclass- 


I honor the writer's impatience to prepare 
for active service. It is the natural reaction 
ot a patriot who wants to fight and fight hard. 
yet, does he ever ask himself what he is 
lighting for. Of what will happen alter the 


Till the isolationists disappeared in tne. 
.moke screen rising from the ruins of Pearl 
Harbor, men thought that by a sheer process 
of ignoring the lessons of time we could es- 
cape history. There were a few who anxiously 
watched the destructive forces gathering 
momentum in Kurope and Asia. When free 
men became enslaved, when houses of worship 
irer« destroyed, when the works of thinkers, 
artists even the Scriptures were burned in a 
holocause of infamy, when treaties were brok- 
en overnight, these few men uttered then- 
warnings. But, they were never taken too seri- 
ously, they were rather considered to be pes- 
simistic idealists in a world which had no 
time to stop and think. 

We, the college students in America today 
bear a grave responsibility. We know what we 
owe to the defenders of Guam and Wake; we 
have heard of a town Lidice; we have read 
about the inhabitants of Coventry; we have 
seen photographs of battered Stalingrad. The 
peaple who gave so much in the fight for our 
freedom did so that future generations would 
profit by their sacrifice. Let us not waste their 


We must become tough physically and men- 
ially. We shall defeat Hitler and Tojo on the 
battlefield, but we must also deliver a knock 
out blow to the ideology of the totalitarian. 
In future years as well as now, we must break 
the arguments for the glorification of super- 
races, we must— when the time comes— sub- 
stitute religion for paganism, we must be 
prepared to suppress any lust for conquest 
anywhere, anytime. We must be ready to tell 
oar enemies "this is right, and that is wrong" 
and we shall have ways to enforce our con- 
ception of justice all over the civilized world. 
Between good and evil there can never be a 
compromise. Both can not exist simultaneous- 
ly in the world. 

I at ree with the writer that no sniper will 
ask a soldier whether he read Marlowe's 
Faust. On this hand., we are not going to wait 
for him to recite Mein Kampf, or a new poem 
by Hirohito. It will be expedient to shoot first 
and ask questions later. But till this day is 
here, let us use our time wisely. 

If the sophomore will read Shakespeare's 
King Lear, he may find in it a lesson in human 
weaknesses; the assayi of sir Francis Bacon 
gave birth to a rise of utilitarian scientificism 
in which we. unfortunately, submerged com- 
pletely; the Areopagitica by Milton is the 
proud affirmation of a thinker in certain inali- 
enable rights. In these works the best, the 
most interesting, the most challenging in the 
history of mankind is handed down to us sup- 
posedly students of culture and future leaders. 
A representative form of government requires 
intelligent constituents. If we fail to respect 
our cultural tradition we shall turn into robots 
in a world gone mad. 

I do not adrocaW that college students 
should sit in hull sessions while other men 
and women fight for their lives. But, I do 
believe that we should use our time before 
it is too late. Man does not live by bread 
alone, neither does he win a fight by physical 
force' alone. The courage and tenacity of our 
armed forces is rooted in a fundamental belief 
in our way of life. Our job will not be an 
easy one, but with faith and intelligence de- 
rived from a knowledge of our hcultural tradi- 
tion we can not, nay. we shall not fail to 
achieve a lasting victory. 

Sincerely yours, 

(Signed) Rudy Mathias '43 

wrote last week suggesting that "unessential 
courses be discontinued for the present time 
and that more practical courses be substituted 
in their place." The "unessential courses" L. 
C. Brautigam lists "as 'Pats', ec, psych, and 
public speaking". It is the purpose of this 
letter to show Mr. Brautigam that a study of 
liberal arts is not only essential in war time, 
but that this study will make him a better 

First, I will consider the two "unessential 
courses" outside the liberal arts, namely, eco- 
nomics and psychology. When I took psycholo- 
gy last year it was a farce. Unless the course 
has been altered considerably I am sure we 
can list the sophomore psychology course as 
"unessential'. However, the charge against 
economies is s ophom oric, to say the least. A 
knowledge of economics becomes one of the 
greatest essentials in a world at war. This is 
such as "a priori" truth that I will let that 
butter that you didn't have for dinner prove 
my point. 

Now, to your charge against the liberal arts. 
I can not dismiss this charge as "sophomoric", 
because there is a strong utilitarian school, 
founded by your "unessential" Francis Bacon, 
that is today building an electric chair for the 
liberal arts. At least, you concede liberal arts 
| its place in peace time. Let me show you it- 
place in college curricula in war time. 

The three divisions of the liberal arts, gram- 
mar, rhetoric, and logic, are concerned with 
ideas. This war began when the idea of totali 
tarianism clashed with the idea of democracy 
on the battle field of thought. Look at the 
ideodynamics in the Renaissance epoch which 
you have charged as "unessential." There i 
the break within the Church in the Protestant 
Reformation. In Francis Bacon there is a 
break of reason and faith. He will reason 
empirically from sensory data that a material 
istic millenium may be realized on this earth 
Doctor Faustus sells his soul to the devil that 
he may enjoy worldly power through know 
ledge. Fearing that all mankind will sell its 
soul to the devil by this dichotomy of faith 
and reason. Milton exclaims that only through 
the Christian virtues of faith, hope, and chari 
ty can this life be happy. In his tragedies 
Shakespeare realizes the end products of the 
great flaws in human nature: procrastination, 
senility, ambition, and jealousy. And what 
was Hitler but a paper-hanger whose Macbeth- 
ian ambition has helped him because a Lucifer 
of a hell on earth, and whose nihilism is but a 
perversion of empiric rationalism. Now you 
see why I call the liberal arts the dynamic- 
of ideas. In this single epoch that you fouml 
M "unessential" to our war effort, lie the 
seeds of totalitarianism. Imagine the yield of 
a complete study of the liberal arts. 

Your retort may well be how all these ideas 
will help us win the war. Let me show you 
what the British government has learned 
about the study of liberl arts in war time. R. 
Ashley Hall of the British Air Ministry, who 
addressed a recent convocation here, states in 
his article, "t niversity Life in War-Time 
Lngland". appearing in the last Novembei 
first News Bulletin of the Institute of Inter 
national Education: "In this war. the malt 
youth may be divided into two sections: the 
scientists and the actual fighters. The war 
needs engineers, chemists, radio specialists, 
of immediate use to the war effort. . . . Now 
as to the active fighters. They are the 'Art^ 
men. Although with regret, the government 
has had to assert that 'Arts' subjects, valuable 
and cultural as they are to the cultural life 
of a nation, have little practical value during 
the actual period of war. Hence in war, time 
cannot be spared for 'Arts' subjects for their 
own sake. But the government has agree., 
that the learning of 'Arts' does tend to devel 
op individual thought, self-confidence, reach 
ness to improvise, a quicker appreciation, an 
just the qualities that produce and enhano 
powers of leadership'. 

In a discussion after his convocation talk, 
Wing Commander Hall said that he dresdi 
what would happen if leaders of the Briti-r 
fortes had only a scientific training. All thi^ 
is easily understandable when we realize that 
science is a study of nature while liberal ait- 
is a study of human nature. If we can take the 
of liberal arts is essential not only for bett< 
word of the British Air Ministry the stu 
soldiers, but for better leaders in winning tl i* 

Of course, the real victory will come at the 
peace table. I think you realize this. And 
• m satisfied if this letter has shown you that 
since the study of liberal arts makes bette: 
soldiers and better leaders the liberal arts 1 «

to be as prompt as possible. 

Slate lost its first game in four 
starts yesterday afternoon and a 
hca it breaker it was to Williams, by 
a one basket margin, 13-11. The game 
w s characterised by thrills galore 

as the lead see-sawed hack and forth 
from the opening whistle to the final 
gun. Neither team held more t'a'i a 

four point advantage over the other 

at any time and the percentage id* 
shots made was high for both sides. 

Bucky Bokina had another day for 
himself, almost duplicating his Spring 
field exhibition, u be Hipped 10 hoops 
and three charity tosses for a total 
of 23 points. This makes an average 
I 21 points per game that the 
lanky center has rolled up thus far 
and it appears that he is only getting 
started. Polles was the big noise for 
the Ephmen as he parted the strings 
for 13 points by virtue of six Held 
goals and one free toss. 

The first half got off to a flying 
start with both teams vicing for hon- 
ors. With three minuts to go. State 
was trailing by tWO markers, 10-17. 
I Bokina eapitallsed on a foul shot and 
I Eddy Podolak followed with ■ two 
pointer so that State lead by a slim 
| 1 point as the period closed. 

The last half was a repitition of the

first as the score see -sawed back and 
forth with both side- finding the I 
ket consistently. Williams sank six 
out of nine shots while Stale depos] 
ted seven out of eleven. 

With ten minutes to go, State led 
37-33. Williams promptly evened mat 

tars at 37 -37 by virtue of two pivot 
hots by Polles. Bokina sank ■ lob 

shot and Waskiewicz followed suit to 
put State in the fore 41-37. Then Har- 
der and PolleS retaliated to tie things 
up at II all. With 50 seconds to go, 
Wallace sunk a long shot from the 
: i<rlit and the game ended before State 
could retaliate. The summary :

UConn Swimrnina Meet 

The State varsity swimming team 
will be out to rectify itself, after 
dropping the close decision to Wil- 1 
liams last week, when it takes on 
the University of Connecticut mermen 
this Saturday afternoon at Stone. 

State is a fairly safe bet to take 
the meet as UConn is in the mediocre 
class. However, with Kirb Hayes still 
out of action and with possibly one 
or two others left behind for various 
reasons, it might be a close contest. 

Bud Hall will again swim the 50 
and 100 yard events, Tilley the back- 
stroke, Coffey, Gare and Niedjela the 
distances, and the 400 yard relay is 
anyone's guess. 

A last half barrage, led by Cap- 
tain Tad Bokina. gave the Maroon 
and White Statesmen a 53—51 win 
over another Maroon squad Spring* 
fit hi- at the Tech High gymnasium 
last Thursday night. 

The bi I bo] rolled up a total of 
2K points by virtue of eleven baskets 

nd '! charity tosses, 13 of these mar- 
kers coming in the hist porto. 

The first half was rather a sloppy 
affair as neither team seemed to get 

going. It wis six minutes, as a matt -r 
of fact, before a point was s co re d . 
At the end of the first period, Spring- 
field led the Hargymen by a seven 
point margin, 25-18. The second half 
was ■ different story, however, as 
the State passing attack began to 
click with the result that the Muscle 
Men were run ragged. With in a 
short time, State had assumed a 2t!-2. r ( 
lead. Bokina then advanced the eaOSS 
by two frvi- shots while Ray Kneeland 
and Stan Waskiewicz came through 
with a pair of hoops. Then followed 
an exchange of baskets during which 
the lead changed hands three times. 
(!ifl tosses by Tom Kelley and a bas- 
ket by "Weeky" put State a'ead "I 
33 but Merrick's charity marker e- 
rased this lead. 

Again, Waskiewicz, who had been 
proving top man in the pinches all 
evening, came through with another 
hoop and a foul shot and from there- 
in it was Bokina a 1 the way. The 
las' ten minutes of play found Spring- 
field gaining slightly on State, as 
Waskiewicz was forced from action 
on four foul charges. However State's 
lea 1 was sufficient to keep it out in 
front although Springfield came with- 
in one basket of a tie. The Summary:

Paige's Bowling Alley 


After reading fhe rules and regu- 
lations pertaining to the Military 
I'hys Ed course which will l>e initiated 
here ne\I semester, we have had all 
sorts of vivid and horrible dreams. 
This one, however, tops the list both 
for excitement and because of the 
fact that it was in Technicolor. Here 
it is. 

The sene: The Cage. Forty or 
fifty students are huddled together 
i.iiM'tably in the center of the vast 
dni arena clad only in the filthy rags 
given them by the Lord High Comp- 
troller of K(|uipment, Sir Samuel 
iiussell. Armed guards pace menac- 
ingly up and down the balcony lering 
St the poor creatures below them. 
There is an air of oppression over all. 
Something is about to snap. 

Action: Kenter a I'hys Ed instruc- 
tor, accompanied by a squad, nattily 
attired in the dashing uniform of the 
j'hystapo. We see by his insignia that 
he is one of the dreaded Death Head 
troopers. He is carrying a black 
snake whip meaningly in the palm of 
hie right hand and roars, "Attention!" 
As if electrified, the entire group 
■naps to. Then follows a grueling 
period of marching— two hours with- 
out a letup. One poor soul, weak from 
food rationing and hour exams, falls 
exhausted. He is dragged out and 
In own into the pool which i^ so sat- 
nrated with chlorine that it hisses and 
sputters as it eats away the tile. 
(And that ain't no dream, Brother!! 
And now comes that which everyone 
knows is inevitable the deadly Com- 

Doando Cowrsel 

The course consists of the following: 
linibing a steel cable studded with 
r a /.or bodes one-handed; running 
along a fifty foot plank, one-half 
inch wide, mounted on springs and 
surrounded by a pit of red hot coals; 
swinging by the teeth on a series of 
trapezes to a platform 150 feet off the 
ground from which one must dive 
onto a damp rag; a wire "chicken 
coop" 12 inches square on one end 
and 4 inches square on the other 
which must be crawled through, and 
i final series of high hurdles em- 
bossed with barbed wire. 

One by one the students go to a 
fate worse than death. Many fall by 
the wayside. One of the stronger ones 
makes it only to be grabbed by the 
guards and thrown to the lions — fail- 
ure to wear proper uniform! 

And then we woke up. Pickle sand- 
wiches and beer always affect us 
that way!

Big Changes First Year 

There were several other events of 
importance during President Baker's 
first year of administration. Work 
was started on the preservation of 
famous old Stockbridge House. A 
major in physical education for men 
was approved by the trustees. And 
Massachusetts State had an unde- 
feated basketball season. 

In the spring of 1984, Lou Bush, 
the great Ail-American football star, 
graduated from State. Lou Bush also 
excelled in basketball and baseball. 
and was nationally famous as a great 

In September, 1984, an addition 
to the athletic field was started. In 
March, it was decided by "the admin- 
istration to substitute vespers for the 
poorly attended Sunday morning cha- 
pels. They were held in the Old Chap- 
»■! at first, but recently, vesper ser- 
vices were changed to Memorial Hall. 
Perhaps the biggest progress 
has been made during President 
Baker's administration is that Mas- 
sachusetts State College now has the 
privilege of awarding A. B. degree^ 
H liberal art- graduates, The 
campaign for this degre started in 
November. 1985, and was backed by 
the students and the alumni. A stu-

Pres. Baker Reports 
On MSC Finances 

Modern Chemistry 

Income from student fees, the 
boarding hall, and hales of products 
enabled Massachusetts State College 
to pay into the state treasury a sum 
equal to more than a third of its 
cost to the state for maintenance for 
the past fiscal year, it was reported 
today by President Hugh P. Baker. 

Quoting a preliminary financial 
statement prepared by college trea- 
surer Robert D. Hawley, President 
Baker said that a total of $491,866.68 
was paid to the state treasurer as 
income for the year ending November 

The stat.' appropriated $1.. 'is*;, 149. 
74 last jrear for the support of the 
college, experiment station, exten- 
sion service, and field stations. Ex- 
penditures amounted to 1,:U2,247.36. 

^President Baker pointed out, in 
releasing the report, that this is one 
of the very few land-grant colleges 
in the country which is required by 
law to return all receipts to the state 
treasury. Most others, he explained, 
are permitted to use this income for 
the furtherance of their educational 

In making the report public. Presi- 
dent Baker explained that the state 
appropriation supported work of the 
experiment station, extension service, 
control services, and field stations in 
Walt ham and Wareham in adition 
to the work of student instruction, so 
these figures should be interpreted as 
giving the cost to the state of ser- 
vices in research, adult education 
throughout the rural communities of 
the st$ate, and various agricultural 
toting program! in adition to the 
work of teaching students. 

The state appropriation was sup- 
plemented last year, the report con- 
tinues, by an amount of $381,534.76 
received from the Federal government 
general maintenance and for sup- 
port of the county extension services. 

Stockbridge School Opens Its Hoop

were first rung on May 1, 1«I7, by 
the president of the company which 
made them. 

Meanwhile, Old Chapel itsell was

Deed M a Library, but was now being 
made over into classrooms and offices 
for the department of languages and

pleted in late April, 19S7.

The. Stockbridge quintet made a 
line showing in the first game of the 
'48 season by beating Smith's School 
hoopsters 28-18 on January sixth. 

Although all the Stockbridge men 
have seen plenty of high-school bas- 
ketball, it was their first game of the 
season. They showed marked talent 
by their playing, both offensively and 

Stevens started the home club to- 
ward victory as he swished for the 
' first two points of the evening after 
two and a half minutes of play. Ste- 
vens again scored and then two quick 
baskets by Coleman and Martin of 
Smith's tied up the score. But Shaw 
and Ziomek were quick to bring the 
home five into the lead again by scor-

Enlisted Reserve Members Will 
Be Called To Active Duty In Very 
Near Future-Adjutant General 

The bulk of enlisted reservists 
throughout the country will he called 
to Motive duty in the Army in the 
very near future according to a com- 
munication issued by Mai. (Jen. James 
a. Clio the adjutant general to the 
commanding generals of the nine 
service commands. General Clio re- 
minded the generals commanding the 
service areas that plans released by 
the war department on December 17 
called for the immediate induction of 
most reservists following the close of 
their first college terms after Decern 
ber 81. 

The report cited above was circu- 
lated throughout the United State in 
an Associated Press wire on January 
28. General Sherman Miles, command- 
in gofficer of the first service com- 
mand, announced at Boston on Mon- 
day that certain exceptions to the 
rule would be made These include: 

1 » Medical and premedical stu- 
dents including dental and veterinary- 

2) Kngineering students of sopho- 
more, junior, or senior standing. 

.'!) Advanced junior and senior 
KDTC students. 

4) Student of sophomore or high- 
er standing in accredited military 

M Aviation cadets In the enlisted

6) Students 
training group. 

This last group was set up at the 
request of the signal corps which 
asked that students in electrical en- 
gineering and other electronics cours- 
es be permitted to finish their studies 
at the discretion of the chief signal 

In general, the program is being 
geand to the specialized training pro- 
gram under which a number of col- 
lege contracting with the war depart- 
ment, will provide instruction with 
their own facilities and staffs to a 
total of about 1T>0,000 young soldiers 
a year. 

No final selection of colleges has as 
yet baen made but the reservists 
called from college for induction into 
the army must complete the basic 
military training of |8 weeks before 
they are eligible for assignment to a 
college for aditional instruction. 

Officials pointed out that not all of 
them would get back to college under 
this program. In the meantime, a 
number of young men already in the 

army, who have never been to eol« 

lege, will have completed their basic 

training and will be eligible for parti-

■tractive leadership it has provided in 
making our Commonwealth aware oi 
war's perils and ready for emergency 
action of every kind. Our State College 
has won its place as a bulwark of our 
democracy." So spoke Dr. W. Elmer Ek- 

blaw Rboul Massachusetts State College 
it a recent editorial written for the 
Worcester Telegram-Gazette. 

Ten years ago Dr. Hugh P. Baker 
was inaugurated president of Massa- 
chusetts State College. Since that time, 
the growth of the State College in phy- , 
steal facilities as well as in sound edu- 
cational policy has been tremendous. It 
requires but a brief examination of the 
record to show that the major events 
which have made Massachusetts State 
College what it is today have all taken 
place during the short ten years of Dr. 
Maker's administration. 

Dr. Ekblaw's words have truly 
caught the spirit and significance of 
President Bakers' administration of the 
affairs of Massachusetts State College 
during the past decade. The progress 
which has been characteristic of the 
State College in the past can well be 
taken as an indication of what the fu- 
ture holds in store for state supported 
education in Massachusetts

To the editor-in-chief of the Collegian, 

and all interested: 

I don't know whether the rest of the 
College is aware of it or not, but I have 
noticed that an increasingly large num- 
ber of students have transferred to 
other colleges, are contemplating doing 
so. or are. at the very least, dissatisfied 
with their college career up to this 
point. I am not an exception to this pre- 
vailing "dither." and I am anxious to 
hear others' opinions as to what is the 
real trouble. The question is, "Is the 
college at fault, or is it the student him- 
self who should be called the cause?" 

This college is democratic. I know-

something beneath the surface of each 
hour of our lives? If Massachusetts 
State College has any tradition, so to 
speak, why shouldn't it be as obvious 
as in other schools? As far as my ex- 
perience has been so far, there is noth- 
ing on this campus that challenges

greater Of course, there are exceptions. 
And I don't honor my mind with the

(or even below!), as long as I stay here. 
Have I a perverted viewpoint? Is this 
true in other colleges? 

The college is turning a little red

myself — representing the stud e n t. 
There is a well-worn but still good-say-

Chicago jazz was suggested by Louis 
Armstrong's trumpet and inspired by 
the music of a few white musicians, 
especially Frank Teschmaker and Bix 
Biderbecke. If we keep in mind that 
Chicago jazz at its beginning and at its 
best was the music of a handful of men 
who lived in Chicago and who played 
together constantly, it is not hard to 
see that the style is a well organized 
Chkago is a simple style. It requires 
an intelligence of its exponents that 
only a few have had. To play simply, 
subtly, strongly, and originally is the 
aim of every Chicagoan. A Chicago im- 
provisor uses no instrumental tricks, 
for he realizes that a novelty only a- 
muses and never lasts.

Because this is the w ek of Winter 
Carnival we have decided to turn this 
column into a snow sculpture. The 
theme will be patriotic, and is to con- 
sist of ourselves, disguised as George 
Washington, throwing the bull across 
a table in the College Store, which in 
turn is disguised as the Delaware River. 
After hearing that the Enlisted Re- 
serve was to be called up at once, we 
immediately tried to take steps to pre- 
pare ourselves for any eventuality. 
First we tried to shoot off one of our 
big toes so as to be unfit for service, 
but W3 found our eyesight so poor that 
we could not even hit one of the big 
flat feet. We really might have thought 
of something good, but we were so tired 
after having the rope climb all over us 
in the first compulsary Phys. Ed. class, 
that we decided the only thing to do 
was to go to bed and await our destiny. 
Tonight the basketball team of Mass- 
achusetts State University meets that 
of the Amherst Agricultural College on 
the bitter's court. The M.S.U. boys are 
naturally favored, since they come from 
a larger and richer school, where a 
great deal in the way of financial and 
spiritual aid is given athletes. On the 
other hand, the Amherst Aggies are 
just a bunch of kids playing for the 
love of the game, working hard, and 
having little time for practice. How- 
ever, the Aggies are expected to make 
quite a battle of it. despite their lack 
of experience, adequate equipment, and 
Other necessities of a winning team, 
and our M. S. U. boys will know they 
have been in a game. 

We have had numerous requests for 
information concerning the wherea- 
bouts of those three persons who so 
often appeared in this column last year: 
Mrs. Merzak. Mrs. Pulsen. and Mrs. 
Ganh. The first named worked in a 
shipyard as a welder, until she accident- 
ly welded herself into the hull of a 
liberty ship, and was last seen scaring 
a German torpedo to death Mrs. Pulsen 
is employed as private secretary to the 
wife of the President of the U. S., and 
has travelled over three million miles 
since last October. Mrs Ganh is still 
standing on the same streetcorner, hail- 
ing taxi-cabs. They will never be men- 
tioned here again,

jazz passages that are remarkably

so. We contend that written music is 
played at the expense of originality and 
originality is an important factor in 
jazz Teschmaker's case was an excep- 
tion because he was a leading improvi- 
sor in the original Chicago outfit. By 
"leading improvisor" we mean that 
other solos were inspired from his. 
Teschmaker was not the only musician 
who has inspired another's solo by his 
own. but it is safe to say that he was 
the onlv one who could do it constantly. 

write out what a soloist should play 
without having to precede him with a 
solo of his own. With one exception 
then. Chicago is an unwritten style.

The first week will be devoted to 
Inhering up and the instructors will 
produce each section to football

The second half was a different

Drill Hall Athletics 

The realm of girls' sports has been 
rather t|uiet timing the last week be- 
cause of final examinations, but now 
that they are over the season will con- 
tinue with as much intensity as ever. 

A badminton tournament is now in 
the seco n d round with a great many 
more to go. The final rounds of the 
tournament will not be played off for 
a few weeks. Also the physical educa- 
tion lasses are carrying on their own 
separate tournaments to determine 
the winner in each class 

Thi Omega beat Kappa Kappa 
Gamma in the semi-finals of the bas- 
ketball tournament on Monday. They 
will play the final game with the Ab- 
bey the second week of this semester. 
When this tournament is over there 
will be an interclass tournament. 

The telegraphic swimming meets 
will take place between the 15th of 
February and the 15th of March. For 
two years the girls at this college 
have broken the national record and 

they hope to do so again this year, tournament are soon to be played off 
Any girls who are interested in com- between the Abbey and North College

Podolak Named For All 
New England Honor 

by S(ev,- ( '/.arnecki 
The State College athletic depart 
merit has been notified by the SOCOSI 
Sports Editor Of the Boston Globe 
thai Kd Bodolak. captain of this 
years soccer BOjUad, was named on the 
All New Knglaml Soccer Team The 
nomination of Podolak this year 
makes four years in succession that 
State has placed a man on this inythi 
cal honoi team. The first State SCOM 
player ever to attain this honor was 
Charles Kodda back in IMP. Sines 
then, Klaman '10, Potter '41, and 
I'oilolak '42 have followed m hi- 

It was by virtue of his many 
sterling performant es on the SOOCSI 
field that the coaches of New England 
chose I'oilolak on this team. Piayittg 
in the fullback position, he wa- OOS 
sistently a thorn in side of the oppo- 
sition, as far as their offensive play 
was concerned. He was a vital cog 
in Larry Brlgs/l soccer machine, ami 
there is no doubt that his SjbsaWCS 
from the squad next year will be felt 

Along with Captain Podolak, two 
other member- of the team received 
special recognition by receiving lion 
orable mention awards. These two 
Other members are John Oiannotti 
ami John Donovan, (iiannotti, captain 
elect of next year's team, distin- 
guished himself by his fine play as a 
goalie. Being a versatile ballplayer, 
he was also used somewhat as an of- 
fensive player in the line. We can re 
call the Coast Cuard game in which 
he played the first half as goalie and 
the se con d half as a lineman, seoting 
the goal that tied up the game. How- 
ever, he does play his best game in 
the goal ami we can truthfully say 
that he M one of the finest goalies We 
have seen all year. 

The final member of the honored 
trio is freshman John Donovan. The 
fact that Donovan played varsity ball 
in his freshman year makes him out- 
standing, but to receive honorable 
mention on the All New Knglaml in 
his first year of college soccer make- 
him phenomenal. He is undoubtedly 
one of the cleverest wings State has 
ever seen, and with three more year- 
of varsity soccer confronting him, he 

will undoubtedly develop into one of 

the greatest sorter players this school 
has known. 


Clothing and 








New Members Are Found In Ranks 
Of The Statesmen And Statettes 

by Edna McNamara '44 
This year's "big fours", the States- 
men and the Statettes, leading musi- 
cal groups on cam mis, were an- 
aounced today as plans went ahead 
for the February 12th Social Union 
despite rumors regarding the pros- 
pective future of the enlisted reserve. 
Porter Whitney '45 and John Foley 
'44 form the experienced background 
of the new Statesmen, with Roger 
Biron and Leon Barron also members 
of the class of '44, being the newly 
appointed members of the group. This 
promises to be an interesting combi- 
nation as the four singers seem to be 
well-matched. The present songsters 
have a five year tradition to live up 
to. The eight alumni of years past are 
now serving in the armed forces, but 
the memory of the superior ability is 
retained on campus. This combina- 
tion of four should be good. 

Their program includes a novelty 

arrangement of "I Wonder Who's 
Kissing Her N'ow", some of the ever 
popular negro spirituals, and some 
of the traditional Statesmen songs. 

Two freshmen will he among the 
women's group as only one veteran 
of the past Statettes remains — Marge 
Stanton who has a record of three 
years singing in the group behind her. 
Bea Decatur, who had a lead in "Yeo- 
men and the Guard", and Lee Hodges 
first and second sopranos are the two 
members of the class of '46, and Bar- 
bara Bird, alto, a member of the 
•lass of '45. Their singing program 
includes such songs as "There Are 
Such Things" in the style made pop- 
ular by previous Statettes. 

The band itself gets into action 
Thursday night when it travels across 
town to the Amherst game. This will 
be its first second semester appear- 
ance, with Bob Radway again being 
featured in a new solo arrangement.

The Stockbridge quintet walked 
away with all the honors on January 
16 u Ziomek scored 27 points to 
lead the Aggie men to victory. 

Tie first quarter was nip and tuck 
all the way, but ended with Stock- 
bridge leading 8-4. 

Ziomek opened up in the second peri- 
od and •cored 14 points, and Shaw, 
Hubbard, and Mazur made one floor 
basket apiece and brought the score 
to .".'-'.> at the half. 

Ziomek was good for 18 points in 
the third stanza. And the scoring was

aZUT and Hubbard scored 15 and 
11 points respectively, and Stevens 
and Shaw showed up well defensively

A brief review of the histories of 
Massachusetts State College and the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture 
and the work of the college experi- 
ment station was presented in a u- 
niqoe way last Wednesday, as Direc- 
tor Verbeck conducted an impromptu

It was one of the first programs 
of this type attempted and the ques-

The poultry classes accomplished 

c unbelievable the other night when 
they out rolled the "Profs" by five 
pins, winning 490-425. This bowling 
duel was the result of a challenge by 
the Senior "Feather-dusters", but the 
freshmen assisted. The instructors' 
team was handicapped by the fact 
that the only regular men were Cap- 
tain Sanctuary and Prof. Banta. Their 
earn was filled out by Thornton and 
"Steve" Stevens, foreman of the poul- 
try pant, and by Milton Smith and 
Violet Shapiro, two members of the 
winter short course.

This is to bo a serious column. The 
only funny thing about it is the idea 
of my writing a column at all. And 
that is the only attempt at a joke that 
is going to appear here, which ought 
to be a relief to some people, I know. 
But, as I said, this is going to be a 
serious column; so if yo 1're reading 
this expecting it to be humorous, stop 
reading right now. 

I think that there is need for a 
column like this on campus. The aver- 
age student doesn't think enough. 
There are going to be laughs now 
and some of you are going to say, 
"Serious column, eh? Don't think, eh? 
Why, finals are just over, and I stud- 
ied an average of five hours a night 
during them." Sure, you study, 
but outside of school work, how much 
thinking do you do? I think 1 ead an 
average life on campus. I hear num- 
erous conversations; I take part in 
them, and they certainly aren't the 
kind that require n good deal of 
thought. I like to have a good time, 
but when you stop to think that we 
are to be the leaders of the world to- 
morrow (I know it sounds trite, hut 
that's what we are to be- the leaders 
of the world tomorrow), the apparent 
lack of serious thought becomes dan- 
gerous; so this column is to make you 

I want to invite you to write let- 
ters. What appears in this olumn is 
my opinion, and I don't expect every- 
body to agree with it. You have your 
opinions, and I have mine. If you can 
show me where I'm wrong, I'll change 
mine. I don't care whether I change 
your opinions, or not. As long as I 
make you interested enough to write 
letters, I'll bt satisfied. Because in 
order to write letters, you've got to 
have ideas. And now to give you an 
ides of this column is to l>e like. 

As I s lid, the opinions here are my 
opinions. My opinions on affairs of the 
world of tomorrow, on what our parts 
in this world will be. on the lives we 
are to lead after this war. Have you 
ever thought on the possibility of end- 
ing all wars? Have you ever thought 
about a United States of the World? 

Do you have the answers to the probj 
lew that would arise from such 
union? Do you have any ideas on wha-J 
should be done about the Axis after] 
the war? These are all questions t| 
which we must have the answers. I'i» 
not attempting to answer them herJ 
I'm just giving my ideas, and, as | 
said, I don't expect you all to agre 
with them. But if you don't, you mud 
have ideas of your own. And if yoJ 
haven't your own ideas, you shoulcj 
have; so start thinking and let's hea 
from you.

Students Leaving 
School Will Lose 
Their ERC Status 

"All member* uf the Knlisted Re- 
serve Corps should stay in college and 
continue along normally until called." 
This sentiment was expressed by 
President Baker and Colonel Young 
today when asked about the dismissal 
of KRC men by other colleges. 

It was ■tressed that, as long as a 
man remains in college, he retains 
his ERC status, meaning a prefer- 
ence as potential officer material upon 
his call to duty. As soon as he with- 
draws from college, whatever the 
reason may be, he loses this preferred 
status and is called to active duty as 
a private receiving no preference for 
his ci d lege training. 

The college administration is doing 
its utmost to learn of the latest plans 
and inform the students, but no fur- 
ther statement has been issued since 
the wilt lead ;it cumulation last 
Meek. Colonel Young urged every 
student to cooperate with the admin- 
istration by proceeding a normal 
course until there is a definite notice 
or call. 

Various rumors heard on campus 

re denounced as groundless. In this 
connection, President Baker stated 
that students should consider lightly 
all rumors until there is definite proof 
of their authenticity. The First Ser- 
vice Command has informed officials 
here that they will be notified as soon 
as say action is to St taken which will 
alfect the college. 

President Baker and Colonel Young 
reminded the students that the stu- 
dents are only injuring themselves 
by not studying. When a man is

The Question Of The ER( 

Kijrht now students who arc mem- 
bers of the Enlisted Reserve Corps do 
not know where they stand. It is hard, 
or better, next to impossible to really 
concentrate on studies, when one may 
leave this work unfinished in two weeks, 
a month or possibly two months, when 
the army calls. This is the student situ- 

There are from 15,000 to 18,000 ERC 
students in New England colleges. The 
First Service Command is busy exam- 
ining the qualifications of these men 
and is attempting to find the best place 
for them in the armed services. Six 
classifications of men, printed in last 
week's issues of the Collegian, will be 
exempt from immediate call to active 
duty. The last official word that the col- 
lege administration has had is the tele- 
gram from the War Department read at 
last week's convocation. It was essen- 
tially a warning to the Enlisted Reserve 
men of the army's intention to call 
them to active duty This is where the 
First Service Command and our admin- 
istration stand. 

President Baker IS anxious to have 
the students from State have the best 
possible place in the army. ERC men are 
potential officer material They are la- 
belled as such. Dr. Baker has asked all 
ERC men to return to their studies for 
second semester. It is for a student's 
own good that he return to his studies 
and stick doggedly at them. As soon as 
a member of the ERC leaves school he 
is no longer regarded as a college stu- 
dent in the reserve. He is then subject 
to immediate induction. In doing this 
a student will lose any preference that 
might be given to college men in the 
reserves. He loses the label of potential 
officer material. He must show his 
worth in the ranks before being consid- 
ered for officer training. 

These are the facts. Forget rumors. 
Don't repeat them and help to kill them 
in this way. The administration has as- 
sured the student body it will give out 

any official information as soon as it is 
received. Let's forget what goes on at 
Amherst College, at the University of 
New Hampshire and elsewhere. At 
Massachusetts State College the admin-

"Joe College" Taken To 

Task For Inability To 

Find Cause Of Trouble 

February 1, 1943 
To the Editor of the Collegian : 

I read "Joe's" letter of last week with 
a good deal of wonder. 

To begin with, Joe says "he" studies 
"a little more than enough to get by". 
He says he engages in extra-curricular 
activities and in neither of these, study 
or play, has he found stimulation or

State, he was a student ot ( harles A. 

Goessman, founder of the chemistry de- 
partment. The lives of Goessman, for 
whom the chemistry building is named, 
and Dr. Peters span the entire history 
of that department. 

The dedication of the 1943 Index to 
Dr. Peters is not only a fitting honor for 
his long affiliation with the State Col- 
lege and its best interests, but it is also 
proper since he was once a member of 
the Index staff in his undergraduate 
years here 

Keenly interested in research, Dr. 
Peters is a member and past president 
of Sigma Xi. He has always been known 
to State students for the high standards 
that he requires in his courses. A for- 
mer student of Dr. Peters and now a 
member of the faculty has said that in 
him is combined the true scientific and 
philosophic mind.

Dear Joe, 

Gosh, you can't imagine how much I 
miss you since you have gone away to 
war. For me. life here on compus just 
isn't the same anymore without you. 
I never see you anymore except once in 
a while when you are marching across 
cam p us with your squad. And no one 
ever screams "Sybil Myrtle" now when 
the telephone rings down at the house. 
No one ever called me up but you. Gee, 
Joe you were a nice guy. 

Gosh, everything is so different with 
you and all the others in the army. All 
the fraternities are closed up. Even the 
back doors are locked. I haven't been to 
a vie party for so long that my joints 
would crumble at the mere scratch of a 
needle on a record. Gee, Joe. I used to 
like to go to vie parties with you. It was 
such fun to play cards with the chaper- 
ones. No one else ever took their girls to 
play cards with the chaperones. Gee, 
Joe. you were a nice guy. 

All the girls down at the house have 
a Saturday night Club. Every Saturday 
night we sit by the fire and knit. I am 
knitting a surprise for you. Its a khaki- 
colored angora shock absorber for your 
commando course I designed it. It con- 
sists of some soft cushions. The angora 
is knit into a cover for them. There are 
springs in the cushions so that when 
you land on them you automatically go 
over the next hurdle. It looks like an in- 
flated bathing suit. You'll look smooth 
in it. Gee, Joe, I hope you like it. 

Well. Joe. I have to study now. That's 
all I ever do of late. I don't like to. I'd 
rather go out with you. You always 

of having while an adolescent high 
school student ; ideals which were "not 
too impossible either". 

What the deuce were they? Whaddya I 
want anyway? Or is it that feeling of 
inconsequence, lethargy and "nega- 
tivism" the result of not knowing what 
you want instead of the result of the 
short comings of the college. You are 
barking but 1 don't know exactly what 
about. Well, let's have a try anyway. 

The tone of the letter, though sin- 
cere enough, had a liberal smattering 
of "sour grapes'". The writer has not 
the guts, intuition or intelligence to 
find the trouble, i. e. his lack of satis- 
faction in his college career, lies for the 
most part in himself. This is obvious 
for I have known several brilliant stu- 
dents who have made a practice and 
spiritual success of their college educa- 
tion, students who were just as com- 
pletely aware of the inadequacies of 
this college. But they had the guts and 
gumption to dig in and pull it out. They 
knew that a successful college educa- 
tion depends 98 per cent on themselves 
and 2 per cent on their associates and 
on the faculty. Don't believe me? 

A student graduated from this college 
two years ago. He worked his way 
through MSC, every last cent. He en- 
gaged in hardly any extra-curricular 
activities. He cut many classes. Most 
important of all, he had a job which 
permitted him to see most of the more 
sordid details of this college instead 
of the comparative few with which 
the average student comes in contact. 
He had few friends in the student body. 
He was even disappointed in love ! ! 

That boy never whined; he learned. 
He talked with professors, he read wide- 
ly, he was busy from 7:00 in the morn- 
ing until 3 a.m. almost every night, — 
and he loved it. He showed me that It 
could be done. 

He knew that nothing he could do 
or say or ask could make the faculty 
better; the senile younger, the imma- 
ture older, the pompous human, the 
outright fools, wise! He knew that he 
could not raise the aspirations or I. Q. 
of his fellow students; — he knew the 
average college student loves to "herd" 
and simulate the antics of the inhabi- 
tants of any of our larger metropolitan 

In other words he knew he couldn't 
cure a college or any of its larger divi- 
sions, such as student body or faculty, 
or any of its ills without starting at 
the individual. This he knew he could 

told me that I wasn't the type that 
should study. You were the only one 
who ever told me that. Gee, Joe, you 
were a nice guy.

P. S. If you could ever get a pass to 

go down town, perhaps we could have 

a sundae at Sards'. Gee, Joe, try to get 

me. That would be such fun.

Prince Hubertus I.owenstoin, an Austrian 
nobleman with a Ph.D. from the University of 
Hamburg and an authority on the fascist state 
is b visiting professor at Hamlin university. 

Last week we graduated the first 
mid-winter class, and a memorable oc- 
casion it was too. The handfull of po- 
tential Bachelors and Old Maids of Arts 
and science appeared resplendent in 
their academic robes, and did a fine job 
of diploma snatching. The Convocation 
speaker held them enthralled during 
his chat, and undoubtedly made the 
whole affair one which will live forever 
in the hearts of those bidding farewell 
to their undergraduate days at Bay 

We hear that those having to leave 
school because of pressure by the armed 
forces cannot be given their bachelor 
degrees, but instead they will receive 
special awards as Widower of Arts. 

The State — Amherst basketball game 
was not an especially hilarious affair, 
but Dean Burns' dance between halves 
was really a dainty exhibtion of the 
modern ballet. The Dean told us after 
in his dressing room, that the new steps 
he used were perfected by himself, in 
conjunction with the National Saint 
Vitus Dance Protection Association, Inc. 
As far as the court contest itself went. 
State's greatest mistake was in not 
playing the first half last, because they 
were one point ahead at its end. 

The theme song of the Russian envoy 
to the Casablanca Conference was: "I

The Winter Carnival is over, but 
there is still time for the Peanut Gal- 
lery Award to the best and most ap- 
propriate snow sculpture. The honor 
this year goes to Alpha Sig. For the 
few unfortunates who did not see this 
masterpiece, it consisted of a huge and 
artisticly piled mountain of snow, on top 
of which was mounted a red beacon, 
and three brown bottles, which had for- 
merly contained a light beverage, or 
more exactly: 

A foaming glass of rich brown hue,

what he wanted in spite of it. That's 
where Joe College comes in. 

The state had built this "boy" a school 
supplied it with books and a few pro- 
fessors, gave him a room and a place 
to eat. He is now working in one of our 
big cities with an education, and he'll 
tell you he got it here! However, it 
wasn't dished out to him. He had ideals 
and a standard of values and he stuck 
to both. As I asked before, what are 
your ideals and standards, Joe? 

To conclude: forget meaningless al- 
truistic tendencies which involve the 
regeneration or creation of the atmos- 
phere of scholarship which according 
to Newman, should surround a uni - 
ersityl Them days is gone forever, be- 
cause we can't make mountains out of 
molehills. Instead, take a cue from Car- 
lyle. who said that a true university 
is a collection of books, and forget 
about the rest of us; we are happy

Over 800 MSC students, swinging 
ahovehl as veterans, literally dug the 
Boston and Maine Railroad out of its 
worst snowstorm in recent yeai>, 
beginning Thursday evening and end- 
ing Sunday. The corps, 24f» strong, 
consisting of nine shifts working in 
four different sections, echoed the 
strains of "I've Been Working On the 
Railroad" as they pitched in with the 
Student War Council to defeat Mother 

J. K. Collins, supervisor of the 
Boston and Maine Railroad, stressed 
the efficient organization of the pro- 
ject by the student leaders and also 
the excellent caliber of work per- 
formed by the crews. Special com- 
mendation was also given to the Tele- 
phone Company, who cooperated by | 
giving a through line for emergency 
calls, and the Dean's Office, who ex- 
cused all workers from classes. 

The storm revealed that the Stu- 
dent War Council was more than a 
power group on campus. Thursday 
evening, the night of the Amherst 
game, the Council leaders quickly 
dispatched a crew of 40 to go out at 
7 o'clock. This crew was gathered in 
twenty minutes. At 9 and 11, two 
crews of SO went out to aid in reliev- 
ing the situation. Although none of 
these giou|i> returned until just be 
fore Friday noon, there were no com- 
plaints, because the Council leaders 
were in theer "pitching" all the time. 

The principal credit for the success 
of the first major test goes to Bob 
Denis for his tireless and thorough 

effort in seeing that every phase of i 
i i was successfully completed. 
Although often on the verge of going 
to sleep standing up, Denis would 
always bound back to do another 
chore. Other praise is due to Dave 
Anderson and diet Mann for their 
excellent job at all hours of the day 
and night. 

Words cannot express the senti- 
ments and memories of the groups 
who went out Thursday evening to 
work, presumably for 10 hours. When 
they returned after HI and 17 hours 
of labor in the dark, cold night, the 
sight was pitiful. Kach man slowly 
dragged himself off the bus to be 
checked off and in some manner sel-

A Few Of The Obstacles On New Military Track Course 

Michigan Students 
Physically Better 

University of Michigan students 
have improved their physical fitness 
by at least SO per cent with comple- 
tion of one term of the institution's 
compulsory "hardening" course, it is 
reported in a survey just completed 
by the university department of phys- 
ical education and athletics. 

Recently made compulsory for ev- 
ery maie student on the campus, the 
program consists of four and a half 
hours each week of supervised cal- 
isthenics, obstacle racing, mass com- 
bat activities, rough and tumble drills 
and competitive activities. 

Tests given more than 1,000 men at 
the beginning and end of the course 
indicate they have changed their phys- 
ical condition from "unsatisfactory" 
to "satisfactory". 

Physical ability of the average man 
enrolled in the course improved by 
not less than 20 per cent during the 
term. Tests on which the progress 
report is based include pull-ups, push- 
ups, right and left hand grip, 440-yard 
run, 00-yard dasli and vertical and 
broad jump. 

"Before and after" achievements 
of the average student revealed the 
following gains: pull-ups, 7.45 to 
10.20; push-ups, 16.93 to 21.18; right 
grip, 50.77 to 59.S6 kilograms; left 
grip, 5.'5.4.'5 to 55.67 kilograms; 440- 
yard run, 74.05 to 68.30 seconds; 60- 
yard dash, 8.03 to 7.92 seconds; ver- 
tical jump, 19.52 to 20.25 inches; and 
broad jump, 91.64 to 92.01 inches. 

The report points out that major 
gains are shown in those events which 
place heavy demands upon "physical 
condition" (pull-ups, push-ups and 
the 440-yard run), while minor chang- 
es are shown in those activities which 
place a higher premium upon "non- 
endurance and explosive power" 
(strength of grip, 60-yard dash and 
the vertical and broad jump.) 

The report also shows that the a- 
mount of gain was directly propor- 
tional to the amount of time spent 
in the conditioning course. While 
most students spent the full four and 
a half hours each week, a group of 
262 ROTC students were enrolled for 
only three hours per week. Compara- 
tive tests indicate these students 
gained less than 70 per cent as much 
as the others. 

Fvidence that the whole, rather 
than merely a fraction, of the group 
had gained is provided by the report, 
90 per cent of the test records repre- 
senting individual improvement. 

A careful check on attitudes of the 
students was kept throughout the 
term. While never less than 70 per 
cent liked the course and never more 
than 16 per cent disliked it, the re- 
port indicates the matter of proper

Fair Peace Must Result After War 
Or Europe Will Make Trouble Again 

Neglect in arriving at a fan peace 
for Kurope after the war may result 
in Kurope becoming the world's Bal- 
kans, Prof. Peter F. Drucker of Ben- 
nington College told 40 graduating 
students at Massachusetts State Col- 
lege last Thursday. 

Speaking at the mid-winter com- 
mencement, first in the history of the 
college, Professor Drucker said the 
coming peace must be planned on a 
world basis and not become merely 
an >ther "European peace". 

President Hugh P. Baker conferred 
degrees upon 27 candidates for the 
bachelor of science, eight candidates 
for the bachelor of arts, and five can- 
didates for the master of science de- 

Professor Drucker elaborated on 
problems to be faced in solving the 
problem of the "smaller nations" of 
Kurope pointing out that many of 
them, while cultural units, are too 
weak politically to be nations as we 
know them, 

"Croups like Croats, Bulgarians, 
Austrians, etc.," he said, "who are 
most conscious of their uniqueness 
and most resentful of a foreign over- 
lord, yet are not nations in a political 
sense because lacking in a positive 
national consciousne 

"The whole Kast never knew the 
concept of a nation," he expained. 
"What these groups want," he added, 
"is not their own nation-state, but 
'national self-determination,' that is, 
local self-government. It was prob- 
ably the one real mistake made at 
Versailles to read the Western con- 
cept of the nation into the tribal or- 
ganization of the Kast." 

Professor Drucker explained that a 
terrific problem exists in giving these 
groups autonomy without inviting a 
revival of the most destructive in- 
ternecine nationalism. 

He suggested a breaking away 
from the concept of the unitarian 
national state in which administra- 
tive organs all cover the same terri- 
tory and express the same social and 
national structure. 

"Here is probably a field in which 
we shall have to develop functional 
administrative oragnizations," he ex- 
plained, "with different territorial 
boundaries: a very large economic 
unit, and even larger military one, 
but very small cultural units and 

attitude is important in producing 
results. The small group which dis- 
liked the course gained only 18.2 per 
cent as much as those who enjoyed 
the program.

Short Course To Aid 
Farm Labor Shortage 

Immediate relief of the dairy farm 
tabor shortage in Massachusetts wi!i 
i>e the purpose of an emergency three- 
week short course to begin at State 
on February *, it was announced 
here today. Men outside the draft age 
and women will be given free board, 
room, laundry and transportation i»v 
the Federal Security Agency in return 
for their agreement to work three 
months on an approved dairy farm 
following competition of the course. 

Roland II .Verbeck, director of short 
courses, said today that unless d.hy 
farmers can get essential labor they 
will be unable to meet the goa's of 
increased production for ourselves and 

for our allies. 

This course will emphasize the 
training of men and women in tne 
elementary dairy farm skills such as 
feeding and general management if 
cattle, harnessing and handling of 
horses, operation of farm machinery,

Phys Ed Time Trials 
Feature Second Week 

The superclass physical fitness pro 
gram for this week will include two 
sessions of practice obstacle course 
running, followed the latter part ot 
the week by obstacle course time 

Instructor Thomas Kck, Depart- 
ment of 1'hysiacl Kduaction for Men, 
has beau assigned to the job of check- 
ing the effectiveness of the physical 
fitness program in general and the in- 
door obstacle course in particular. Mr. 
Kck will measure progress by taking 
time trials of all the upperdassmen 
over the obstacle course, checking ob- 
staclea missed after working during 
February and Man h. Time trials will 
be given again and improvement in 
obstacles made or missed, checked. 

Mr. Kck is checking Section V by 
timing all the members of that sec- 
tion in rope climbing, and will re- 
chock again the last week in March. 

Section I has been given special 
arm and shoulder girdle tests, i.e. 
push-ups and chin-ups and they will 
also be recheched. 

All the testing of work on the in- 
door obstacle cour.-e will come before 
the first of April. Mr. Kck and Mr. 
Paradysa are working on plana for 
the outdoor obstacle course, which 
will be directly in front of the physi- 
cal education building, using part of 
the [larking space. 

Next week, swimming will alternate 
with basketball as the activities for 
the week, fib tack course and condi- 
tioning exercises will continue at the 
MUne time. Mr. Ilai ge-heimer has 

planned on eight-skill progressive 

course. Mr. Rogers will give; all the 
men the Navy test for the first ses- 
n followed by the war aquatics 
program which will include platform 
jumping into the water feet first, 
floating, silent swimming, two 

of swimming on back, and two 
ion of underwater swimming.

Tufts may be a different story The 
Jumbomen started their season r.ithei 
slowly but have won their last few 
games. Springfield handed then a set 
hack shortly after State downed the 
maroons and that may be some com- 
parison. A lot depends on whether or 
not State's new starting combination 
clicks in these two games. Coach 
llargesheimer is planning to start Kel

Kneeland. Wai Ten Anderson, who ha> 

come cut for the varsity just recently, 

should see his share of service The 
tall sophomore has been showing up 
Well in practice and his height can 
be used to good advantage. 

A blow to the State forces came 
yesterday with the announcement 
that Stan Waskiewicz is declared in- 
eligible because of marks. The big 
boy will be sorely missed as one of 
the sparkplugs of the team.

Still has its powerhouse, led by Cap- 
tain Jim Tisdall, intact. Swanson's 
absence will be a relief to the state 

offense since his underhand layup -h<>t 
caused State to foul continually. 
Again, the element of revenge may 
spell a different story for State next

Campus Weather Observatory Proves 
Its Value To Agricultural Workers 

Campus Camera 


Tin- main purpose of the weathei 
observatory located in Stockbridge 
Hall is to supply information which 
will l>e of value to various men in 
tin experiment stations who are 
working on plant and animal life. By 
referring to the records on total hu- 
midity, rainfall and sunshine for the 
year, these men often find the ex- 
planation for a bumper crop or the 
reverse as the case may be. 

The observatory, which is run un- 
der tie direction of Professor Gun- 
neea, is a cooperative observer for 
the I . S. Weather Bureau but is not 
a part of the U. S. Weather Bureau.

The campus observatory dates from

weather have been kept since that 
time. The items observed are rain,

task was to clear the main track in 
front of the Holyoke station and re- 
vive a mail car from apparent doom. 
Some of the members of the group 
working Saturday and Sunday were 
members of the "rangers" who stag- 
gered and shoveled through Thursday 
and Friday. The Holyoke group 
worked from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. to 
kep the week-end passenger service 
in operation. 

Karly Sunday morning, a group of 
81 men went to East Deerfield to un- 
<over again the switches x*eburied by 
Saturday's squall. At the same time. 
2i» men, journeyed to Holyoke to pio- 
neer a trail from the Holyoke station 
to the mills beyond Jackson Street. 
Some of the drifts were over the 
knees of the shovelers and trial and 
error was necessary to find the right 
spot to shovel. 

The food situation, normally a diffi- 
cult one for 246 hungry young men, 
was solved after the first shock was 
over. In East Deerfield, the Railroad 
YWCA fed the group with prepared 
specials and only one course. Any- 
thing else was purchased by the in- 
dividual. In Springfield, a fifty cent 
limit was imposed for each student 
and all extras being paid by the stu- 
dent. This meal was furnished by a 
nearby restaurant. The crews who 
worked in Holyoke literally took over 
Waldorf Restaurant and had a field 
day. In comparison with the other 
eating facilities, at Waldorf the sky 
wa> the limit. The work performed by 
the State men at the dinner table 
equalled the excellent task of clearing 
out three foot drifts in record time. 

Officials of the Boston and Maine, 
from supervisor Collins to the sec- 
tion foremen, expressed their praise 
for the students who tackled the pro- 
blems as veterans. Some foremen de- 
sired crews for this week, but it was 
decided that everyone better return 
to his books and make up for the 
time away from classes. The final 
sentimenti were expressed by one 
freshman who said: "As soon as I 
get paid, I'm going to start praying 
for another Miowstorm."

My Opinions 

By Amell 

:,,im>i in o i iMiniihii 

The other night the local movie 
theatre had a Walt Disney cartoon 
on its program, which isn't at all 
strange because the theatre shows 
Walt Disney cartoons quite often. 
But this was different than the ordin- 
ary cartoon. It was propaganda, pure 
and unadulterated. For those of you 
who didn't see this cartoon, I'll give 
a brief resume of it. The title was 
"Hitler's Children". It showed the 
upbringing of a Nazi child. It showed 
how truth is distorted to fit the Nazi 
program. It showed little "Hans" 
growing up from a loveable little boy 
to a puppet trained to kill. In this 
picture the Nazis were depicted as 
brutal, red-faced (if their faces 
weren't obscured by black shadows) 
inhuman beings. Which brings a ques- 
tion to mind, that question being 
"Why are our enemies always pic- 
tured as monstrous beasts?" 

And the answer can be given in 
one sentence. It is part of the pro- 
paganda aimed at the American pub- 
lic in order to win the war. It is 
much easier to kill a man if you 
picture him as a long-toothed drool- 
ing creature with lustful eyes mag- 
nified by thick glasses. With such a 
picture before one's eyes it is much 
easier to shoot the guns, or drop the 
bombs that are going to kill one's 
■ ellow men. It makes one want to 
ki,l his enemies if he sees them as 
beasts. Yes, such a portrayal of our 
foe is helpful towards winning the 
war. But I sometimes wonder if this 
portrayal isn't dangerous, also. 

Killing the last war the Cermans 
were pictured as black-faced mon- 
sters. Which certainly didn't help any 
in the attempt to establish a perman- 
ent peace. Even now youngsters play 
soldier, and the villain is always 
a Jap or a German. These youngsters 
are learning to hate the Japs and the 
Germane. And, as I said, I wonder if 
this isn't dangerous. 

We would all like to live in a 
world in which a permanent peace is 
assured. But I can't see how there 
can be a permanent peace if two 
nations such as Japan and the I'nited 
States, or (Jermany and England, 
hate each other. Such hate is being 
bred in the children of all the nations 
now fighting. And yet we expect to 
end all wars! 

Right now we can't do much to 
prevent Hitler from teaching "his 
children" to hate us. That will have 
to wait until after the war. But we 
can help by teaching American chil- 
dren, our younger brothers and sis- 
ters, that all Japs and Germans aren't 
beasts. I realize we have to win the 
the war. And one of the easiest ways 
to do it is to instill a hate of the 
enemy in our soldiers so they'll want 
to kill him. 

But I think there is a better way 
Maybe you won't agree with me. 
Maybe you'll think I'm idealistic. But 
if we could instill such a deep love 
for democracy in the youth of this 
country, in all the citizens of this 
country, such that they would want 
to fight for democracy, and not to kill 
Jape or Germans because they are 













Japs or Germans, I think we would 
have a better change for permanent 
peace after this war. It would !><• 
better if we taught our people to 
hate the way of life typified by the 
German way of life, and not to hate 
the GenMMM and Japs personally. 
After all. all of our enemies can't 
be as bad as they are pictured. Or 
maybe you think they are. Let's hear 
from you.

Further word concerning the status

Affairs Forum To 
Start February 17 

The first in a series of faculty-stu- 
dent forums on international and 
national and national affairs will be 
held on Wednesday, February 17th, 
at 7: SO p. m. in the Old Chapel Au- 

The subject for the first forum is 
is "America's Responsibility in the 
Poot-Wai World." Faculty speaker- 
will be Professor (Gary »nd Major 
Chambliss of our own faculty and 
Professor Stetson Conn of the Am- 
herst College history department. 

A principal feature of the forums 
will be the question period following 
the talks. Speakers will be limited to 
10 minutes each and are urged to 
present their personal opinions as 
much as possible. It is hoped that the 
variety of opinions expressed will 
stimulate a lively period of questions 
and discussion. 

The forum series is under the di- 
rection of Dr. Caldwell of the His- 
tory Department, with the active as- 
sistance of Reverend Easton and the 
religious organizations on the cam- 
pus. Other forums will be announced 

Mid-Year Freshmen ! 
Admitted To State 

A new class has l>een created, so to 
-peak, in the form of "sub-freshmen." 
Before the war, the traditional four 
classes made up the main student 
body of every college, but this year 
many of the colleges, including our 
own, have registered "sub-freshmen." 
In this college, the students were eith- 
er graduates from high school in Jan- 
uary, or highly recommended seniors 
who had not finished the year but 
were deemed worthy enough to begin 
((.liege the second semester. 

This first January entering class 
is made up of nineten students, six

The performance may be the last 
public appearance of many soloists 
and members of the menV glee club. 
In actuality it may be the end of a long 
era of campus trained musical groups. 
The singers under Dorw Alviani's 
leadership are giving the program 
their best efforts under the strained 
conditions of the speed-up semester, 
and it promises to rate our whole- 
hearted support. 

The program itself, as outlined in 
last week's Collegian, will be divided 
into three parts— the straight choral 
work coming first as a means of 
bringing the audience into a receptive 
mood, then the introduction of some 
new tunes from the Doric Alviani - 
BOO .McCartney operetta "I inted We 
Love," and finally the proper patriotic 
note with this wartime celebration of 
Lincoln's birthday. 

Helen Van Meter will take over

by the American Ballad singers last 
year, due to Bob's absence on sick

frequently changing from absolute 
darkness to full stage lights. Vernon 
Cole, '14, the new manager of the 
men's glee club, has the solo in "Re- 
ligion is a Fortune," one of the past 
season's favorites. 

The idea of continuous music — con- 
tinuous singing, will be carrieif 
through by the use of musical fillers 
not listed in the regular program, 
such as the "Piano Concerto," "Praise 
the Lord and Pass the Ammunition," 
"Twilight Shadows," and the "Victory- 
Song," the latter making a good 
waltze when played at a slow pace.

Is The Senate Fulfilling Its Purpose? 

In this issue of the Collegian we have 
initiated a new colum called "The Black 
Hat" which will consist of notes from 
the Student Senate. Cob Fit/.patrick. 
Senate president, will write the -olumn 
which will cover the news from the 
weekly Tuesday night meetings of the 
Senate. He also plans to bring such con- 
troversial elements into his column as 
are discussed at the Senate meetings. 

It ta common talk among many stu- 
dents that the Senate is not fulfilling 
its purpose We doubt this, for that 
bod}' is working under adverse condi- 
tions In the first place, the Senate con- 
stitution states some of its functions as 
follows: "It shall exert a governing in- 
fluence on student conduct and activities 
tnd it shall represent the interests of 
the student body before the faculty and 
Administration/' It is not always called 
upon to perform such duties. In the sec- 
ond place, it has been difficult for them 
to work and make any long range plans 
for the student's best interest with the 
uncertain effect of the war upon enroll- 

The Senate also has power to super- 
vise and determine the procedure for 
student elections, appoint committees, 
and make expenditures from a fund 
provided for it by the men of the col- 
lege through the students' activities 
tax. Such committees as those for the 
Winter Carnival Ball. Dad's I)ay, Cam- 
pu- Varieties, Student Leader Day. and 
Soph-Senior Hop are Senate appointed 

The present Senate has taken a defi- 
nite step forward in planning to have 
all campus elections held at the same 
time this spring This will avoid all the 
confusion apparent in recent years. In 
that way there will be one campus elec- 
tion day for the class officers, Maroon 
K <-•.-. and Senate. 

It is hoped that student mteresi in 
the Senate will see a new revival. Any 

n ■ • • or suggestions should be 
made directly to the Senate and not I 
I "grip**" to roommates or fraternity 

brothers. The objectives of the present 
Senate is to get students to actually 
participate in their own government. 
An active student body can strengthen 
the college from within and better the 
college and its name to no end.

A Correction 

In the Collegian of a few weeks ago 
through the Editor's Mail, "Joe College*' 
stated that "an increasingly large num- 
ber of students have transferred to oth- 
er colleges, are contemplating doing 
so ,...** Of course no figures can 
be obtained concerning the latter, but 
it has been pointed out that the former 
is an erroneous statement. From official 
figures covering the past few years, be- 
tween five and ten students transfer to 
other colleges yearly from State. This 
figure does not include students who 
have completed their studies here and 
who have gone on to medical, dental, 
and veterinary schools elsewhere. The 
acceptance of about 25 to 90 students 
here that have transferred from other 
colleges every fall more than compen- 
sates for the loss of students by trans-

John Hicks 

And so Uncle Sammy gains a war- 
rior, and the Peanut Gallery a new au- 
thor. We admit that it is a sacrilege to 
retain the title of "that hilarious bit of 
literary genius", for which are at the 
fingertips of only one person — John 
Hicks. We can guarantee, however, to 
fulfill the conditions of the will to stand 
against the forces of evil forever — 
which should keep us pretty busy — and 
I perpetuate the name of its founder, 
which should not be too difficult an as- 

It appears that another of our tasks 
will be to perpetuate the name of the 
| New York Giants, and more particular- 
! ly that of their great southpaw, Carl 
; Owen Hubbell. Having been a Red Sox 
j fan the greater part of our life, and not 
being familiar with the environs of 
j Coogan's Uluff, 'where the Harlem River 
flows", we would appreciate it greatly 
j if anyone has any ten-volume tomes ly- 
ing around which would enlighten us 
! on that delightful subject 

The spirit of war-time which has 
been sweeping over our fair campus has 
finally reached the inner sanctum of the 
GoodeU Library. The "devil-may-care" 
atmosphere has found its way through 
the stacks to — of all people — Basil 
Wood. Our good librarian, it seems, has 
given his blessing to Q.T.V. — plus an 
invitation to hold a vie dance in the 
main ball-room— er, pardon the main 
reading-room We think it would be a 
sweet gesture for the QT.V.'s to ask 

Another Letter From 

"Miscreant" Blames 

Irreligious Upbringing 

February 9, 1943 
To the editor of the Collegian; 

To offer a purely personal, semi-ex- 
planation of Joe College's melancholia, 
(ColLgian. Jan. 28) this letter is in- 
tended to supplement last week's blath- 

It is not plausible that all the blame 
should be heaped on poor Joe's should- 
ers. It could be that the "times are out 
:>f joint." Let's start at the beginning. 

Many years ago we had colleges. They 
were in England and contained men ap- 
proaching and aspiring to the pattern 
of Leonardo Da Vinci. Leo.among other 
things, painted the "Last Supper" and 
the "Mona Lisa", he was foremost a-

venting the airplane (model) and the 
submarine, he was an architect and one

that day had th » perspective and intel- 
lectual competance so lacking here. 
Imagine the bliss of the neophyte who 
lived and learned with such students. If 
we lived in those days Joe would not 
have written his letter. 

Massachusetts State College, as other 
colleges, has fallen so far from this 
standard that even the aspiring neo- 
phyte can "taste the difference" im- 
mediately. In what way has it fallen? 
It has fallen in spirit, in quality of stu- 
dent and faculty, in its hopes, plans, and 
object ives-et al. However, I propose 
that all these stem primarily from one 
cause. Consider the average &ISC stu- 

He painfully displays the materialism 
and mechanism of his secondary edu- 
cation and former life. Ih- knows littl? 
and would care little for right and 
wrong, or truth and falsehood, did he 
know what they are His primary pur- 
pose is twofold; to get equipment, with 
least possible exertion, with which to 
feed himself; and then, to become a 
technician of life. In his questionably 
serious moments he feels that a college 
will give him more technical equipment 
to cope with the "higher or better, 
things of life'. He has a test tube-mind 
with plenty of sediment at the bottom. 
Everything works according to the 
books and we have the books at oT MSC. 
Ethics, morals and culture have become 
respectively, social etiquette, what you 
can get away with, and a thorough 
knowledge of jazz, the National League, 
and relative merits of the Chevrolet. 
Who can deny that these facts hold true 
for so large a percentage of students 
that the effect of the remainder is neg- 

What is to blame? Purely and simply 
an irreligious, quasi-religious or "lip 
service" religious upbringing. 

Patient, honest and sincere search 
for the pattern of life, God's will — call 
it what you will — automatically makes 
a man moral, ethical — though not neces- 
sarily cultured ; and is at the same time 
absolutely incompatible with such atro- 
cities on decency as "Campus Vari-

My Ituth Sperry 

Oh would there were a brain 
Arattling round our head — 
Passing courses is much more novel — 
Than flunking them instead. 

Or would there were a gremlin 
Who. unsuspected and unseen. 
Could add a point or twenty 
To marks before they met the Dean. 

Or would there were some device, 
To give the Baldwin such high polish 
That profs would smile on us 
And all our fears alx>lish. 

But wishes such as these 

Are fond and foolish: 

We have no brain; there is no gremlin; 

Professors are coolish. 


We revel in the contemplation

Where we can make Tiff en 
Instead of average sixty-three.

and such a situation is so, the student 
has no chance to exhibit his better 
self which is indubitably good. "Bad 
pennies always turn up — " "you can't 
fool all of the people all of the time" 
"by their fruits you shall know them"—

righteousness in the aspirations of the 
student body as a whole, (not the iso-

it would gleam like a carbon arc in the

The trouble is fundemental and so 
increasingly obvious that each of us will 
soon have to ask himself, not "Why am 
I in college?" but "Why am I alive?" 
Perhaps we have already asked but we 
shall soon have to answer. Some will 
blow their brains out, some will drink

Joe College Defended 

As Having Initiative 

By Letter To Editor 

February 9, 1943 
To the Miscreant: 

First let me say that I cannot agree 
with you on your ideas or arguments 
which you have set up against "Joe Col- 
lege." On the contrary I am inclined to 
agree with him. 

To begin with, you say that "Joe" 
has not the guts, intuition, or intelli- 
gence to find out the trouble with this
